The Incident Command system is based on flexibility and adaptability.  The capability to develop a management system to address the needs of any event or incident regardless of size type or complexity is one the hallmarks of ICS.  In this session we will discuss the process of transition from a “routine” (ICS Level 100) or “working" (Level 200) incident to the more extensive or complex (Level 300 and above) incident.

In this session we will:

·         Describe the incident/event management process for supervisors and expanding incidents as prescribed by the Incident Command System (ICS) for evolving incidents as they expand in size and/or complexity.

·         Describe how the Incident Command System “classifies” incidents and some typical fire and rescue services classify incident type and levels of response.

·         Describe how to implement the incident management process on a simulated Type 3 incident.
