AIIMS was developed in Australia during the mid 1980s, its genesis being the United State's National Inter-agency Incident Management System (NIIMS). Since then both AIIMS and NIIMS have evolved with the US System now referred to as the National Incident Management System or NIMS. The US model still has relevance for the ongoing development and application of AIIMS. Read the current version of NIMS.
