Scope This training module is based on the information obtained in the International Association of Campus Law Enforcement Administrators (IACLEA) - Campus Protection Officer Training Program – Second Edition.
Purpose To create a standardized training program for higher education, non-commissioned campus safety and/or security officers in the Pierce County Region.
Objectives • Identify three purposes of the Incident Command System (ICS). • Identify requirements to use ICS.
What Is an Incident? An incident is . . . . . . an occurrence or event, natural or manmade, that requires a response to protect life or property.
What is the Incident Command System? • The Incident Command System: • Is a standardized, on-scene, all-hazard incident management concept. • Allows its users to adopt an integrated organizational structure to match the complexities and demands of single or multiple incidents without being hindered by jurisdictional boundaries.
ICS Purposes Using management best practices, ICS helps to ensure: • The safety of responders and others. • The achievement of tactical objectives. • The efficient use of resources.
History of ICS Weaknesses in incident management were due to: • Lack of accountability. • Poor communication. • Lack of a planning process. • Overloaded Incident Commanders. • No method to integrate interagency requirements. The identification of these areas of management weakness resulted in the development of ICS.
