Incident Command System

The Incident Command System (ICS) is a standardized on-site management system designed to enable effective, efficient incident management by integrating a combination of facilities, equipment, personnel, procedures, and communications operating within a common organizational structure.

The ICS is used to manage an incident or a non-emergency event, and can be used equally well for both small and large situations. 

ICS helps to ensure:

? The safety of responders and others.
? The achievement of response objectives.
? The efficient use of resources.
