Incident Management Team

Office of Emergency Management

The New York State Incident Management Team (IMT) is a multi-agency/multi-jurisdictional team that can be deployed or activated when needed to manage an incident or event safely, effectively, and efficiently, regardless of the cause, size, or complexity.

The New York State IMT is a qualified Type III All-Hazards Incident Management Team that is made available to State agencies and governmental authorities by request to the New York State Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Services and coordinated by the State OEM IMT Section.

The requesting jurisdiction will retain all local control, authority, and responsibility throughout the duration of the incident while the IMT provides incident management assistance on their behalf.
