Hospital Incident Command System Aids


To effectively manage emergencies, whether external (ie: fires, earthquakes) or internal (ie: staff disruptions, utility failure) hospitals must ensure adequate preparations are in place. Since its inception in the late 1980’s, the Hospital Emergency Incident Command System (HEICS) served as an important emergency management foundation for hospitals in the United States. Evolved to become HICS – the Hospital Incident Command System is recognized to be not only important in emergency situations but also for preplanned events and non-emergent situations. By embracing the concepts outlined in HICS, a hospital is positioned to be consistent with National Incident Management System (NIMS) command design guidelines and to participate in a system that promotes greater national standardization in terminology, response concepts and procedures. HICS provides hospitals of all sizes the tools needed to advance their emergency preparedness and response capability - both individually and as a member of the broader response community.

One of the first steps to setting up an Incident Command System is Position Identification. CareTek Resources, Inc. has launched a new line of HICS Quick Reference/Identification Cards. The HICS Quick Reference/Identification Cards will make it quick and easy for your Incident Command System (HICS or NIMS) to be up and running.
