Chain of command and unity of command is NIMS management characteristic that helps to eliminate confusion caused by conflicting instructions. The chain of command characteristic gives the authority to the incident commander to direct actions while unity of command helps eliminate conflicting directives. The chain of command prevents confusion by requiring supervisor to give orders together with restricting information flow among employees. On the other hand, unity of command ensures all employees are under the direct supervision and control of one superior.
