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.
