INCIDENT COMMAND SYSTEM HANDBOOK & JOB GUIDES
December 18, 2017 – The National Incident Management System Incident Command System (ICS) is a flexible, scalable structure that provides standardized processes, procedures, organizational structure, and common terminology for incident management. This structure facilitates the integration of multiple organizations while still maintaining a coherent chain of command.
Meridian’s Incident Management Handbook (MIMH) can be used to support training, exercise, and management of all incident types and planned major events. It identifies responsibilities for key ICS positions, explains the ICS Planning Cycle, and supports critical work processes.
The MIMH is based on best practices of government agencies and industry organizations. Only information which is applicable to all organizations is included.
Meridian Job Guides are designed to support both experienced responders and those who are in training. As an experienced responder goes through the ICS Operational Planning Process, they can use the checklists to ensure that they meet their responsibilities. Some of the tasks are one-time actions; others are ongoing or repetitive for the duration of the incident.
Organizations can use the Evaluation portion of the Job Guide for certifying their personnel.
