The Incident Command System (ICS) is a way of handling emergencies that everyone follows. It helps people work together and stay organized when there’s a problem. One of the most essential parts of ICS is having someone in charge called the Incident Commander. They’re chosen based on their experience, training, and ability to lead during an emergency.
The organization that handles the emergency gets to pick the Incident Commander. It could be the local police or fire department, the state emergency management agency, or even the federal government if it’s a big problem. Other people, like the Emergency Operations Manager or the Public Information Officer, can help, but they need to choose the Incident Commander.
