Unit 3 ICS Concepts and Principles

ICS was developed to manage incidents and the resources used on the incident. Incident resources are part of one of the four management sections; Planning, Operations, Logistics, and Finance/Administration.

The helibase or helispot manager may directly or indirectly supervise the helicopter crewmember.

Follow the Chain of Command

The ICS is a series of management positions in order of authority. Following the chain of command is simplified.

Unit 3 ICS Concepts and Principles

Follow the Chain of Command

The chain of command refers to the

orderly line of authority within the ranks

of the incident management organization.

Assignments and resource request occur only with the person directly above or below them in the organization.

Follow the Chain of Command

It is very important to follow the

established chain of command anytime

you have a question or concern to get it

resolved.

Unit 3 ICS Concepts and Principles

Span of Control – Key Points

Span of control is key to effective and

efficient incident management.

Maintaining an effective span of control

is important because safety and

accountability are a priority.


Ics concepts and principles12

ICS Concepts and Principles

Unit 3 ICS Concepts and Principles

Span of Control – Key Points

Within ICS, the span of control for any

incident management supervisor should range from three to seven subordinates with five being the optimum.


Ics terminology

ICS Terminology

Unit 3 ICS Concepts and Principles

ICS establishes common terminology

that allows diverse incident management

and support entities to work together

across a wide variety of incident management functions and hazard scenarios.


Ics terminology1

ICS Terminology

Unit 3 ICS Concepts and Principles

Organizational Functions – Major functions and functional units with domestic incident management responsibilities are named and defined.

Terminology for the organizational elements involved is standard and consistent.


Ics terminology2

ICS Terminology

Unit 3 ICS Concepts and Principles

Incident Facilities – Common terminology is

used to designate the facilities in the vicinity

of the incident area that will be used in the

course of incident management activities.


Ics terminology3

ICS Terminology

Unit 3 ICS Concepts and Principles

Resource Descriptions – Major resources—including personnel, facilities, and major equipment and supply items—used to support incident management activities are given common names and are "typed" with respect to their capabilities, to help avoid confusion and to enhance interoperability.


Ics terminology4

ICS Terminology

Unit 3 ICS Concepts and Principles

Position Titles – At each level within the ICS organization, individuals with primary responsibility have distinct titles. Titles provide a common standard for all users, and also make it easier to fill ICS positions with qualified personnel.

ICS Helicopter Typing

Unit 3 ICS Concepts and Principles

ICS developed a classification to

distinguish the different types, sizes, and

capabilities of helicopters.

Helicopters were classified as “Type” along

with a number to distinguish what category

an aircraft fits in based on capabilities.

Typically, a Type 1 is the largest category.


Ics helicopter typing1

ICS Helicopter Typing

Unit 3 ICS Concepts and Principles

Typing of helicopters took the guess work out of what kind of helicopter to order or what type to expect.

This simplified the entire air operation organization.

A helicopter may have twelve passenger seats, but that does not mean it can lift that much weight.

Density altitude and other environmental factors can affect payload.

Density altitude will be covered in unit 5.

Unit 3 ICS Concepts and Principles

Different models within the same series of helicopter may look the same, but newer models generally have increased performance.

Example: Bell 206 “Long Ranger” series

(L-1, L-3, L-4). The L-1, L-3 and L-4 look the same but the L-4 has a bigger engine and better performance.

Summary

Summary

Unit 3 ICS Concepts and Principles

ICS types of helicopters are intended to

provide a general classification of their

capability.Helicopters dispatched to incidents are generally what are available. However, it

is important to know the general capabilities of the types of helicopters to effectively and efficiently use them when assigned to an incident.
