Abstract

Effective use of the Incident Command System (ICS) is the key to regional interoperability. Many different organizations with different command structures and missions respond to a disaster. The ICS allows different kinds of agencies (fire, police, and medical) to work together effectively in response to a disaster. Functional requirements, not titles, determine the organizational hierarchy of the ICS structure. The ICS is a modular/adaptable system for all disasters regardless of etiology and for all organizations regardless of size.
