MERET Hospital Incident Command System (HICS) Toolkit

Description: This toolkit was developed to assist Regional Hospital Resource Coordinators (RHRCs) and others who are qualified to teach hospital incident management system courses that are patterned after the National Incident Management System. The goal of this training is to help hospital management (1) better understand the hospital incident command system, (2) open an incident command post, and (3) assume command and general section chief positions within the HICS infrastructure.
