Incident Command System Core Concepts:
- Common terminology -use of similar terms and definitions for resource descriptions, organizational functions, and incident facilities across disciplines.
- Integrated communications -ability to send and receive information within an organization, as well as externally to other disciplines.
- Modular organization -response resources are organized according to their responsibilities. Assets within each functional unit may be expanded or contracted based on the requirements of the event.
- Unified command structure -multiple disciplines work through their designated managers to establish common objectives and strategies to prevent conflict or duplication of effort.
- Manageable span of control- response organization is structured so that each supervisory level oversees an appropriate number of assets (varies based on size and complexity of the event) so it can maintain effective supervision.
- Consolidated action plans- a single, formal documentation of incident goals, objectives, and strategies defined by unified incident command.
- Comprehensive resource management -systems in place to describe, maintain, identify, request, and track resources.
- Pre-designated incident facilities- assignment of locations where expected critical incident-related functions will occur.
