NDMS

The National Disaster Medical System (NDMS) combines Federal and non-Federal medical resources into a unified response to meet natural and man-made disaster needs, as well as support patient treatment requirements from military contingencies.

The National Response Framework (NRF) utilizes the National Disaster Medical System (NDMS), under Emergency Support Function #8 (ESF #8), Health and Medical Services, to support Federal agencies in the management and coordination of the Federal medical response to major emergencies and federally declared disasters such as natural disasters, major transportation accidents, technological disasters, and acts of terrorism including weapons of mass destruction events.
