Portable Incident Command Station for your ICS

In the past, we’ve blogged about incident command systems and their importance in effectively managing emergency response. Much of putting in place a valuable Incident Command System (ICS) is developing the organizational structure that will ensure emergency response operations are carried out quickly and safely. However, ICS facilities and equipment play an important role as well.

In a mass casualty event or other disaster relief situation, it is critical to have an Incident Command Center for your ICS volunteers to work from. From this central location, EMS professionals should be able to receive and classify patients, provide emergency care, maintain adequate records on patients and casualties, and disseminate information to emergency response workers  federal agencies, state and local government officials, patient families, the press, and the general public. The Incident Command Station serves as the epicenter of an event.

Playing such a critical role in emergency preparedness, the Incident Command Post is definitely a big consideration to include in your Incident Command System. With a wide variety of equipment and full solutions available, it can be hard to determine exactly what is needed for your organization’s readiness – and costs can add up quickly.
