In NIMS, when do managers plan and prepare for the demobilization process?

In NIMS, managers plan and prepare for the demobilization process at the same time they begin mobilizing resources.

The demobilization process is considered and integrated into the operational planning from the outset, facilitating a smooth and orderly transition from active response to demobilization and ensuring resources are rehabilitated, replenished, and either returned or restored to operational condition efficiently.

This proactive approach to demobilization planning highlights the crucial role of foresight and thorough preparation in incident response, facilitating efficient resource allocation and reducing disruptions during the shift from active incident management to recovery and regular operations.
