Incident Management Systems (NIMS, SEMS, ICS, and HICS)

Hospital Incident Command System (HICS)
The Hospital Incident Command System (HICS) is an incident management system based upon the Incident Command System (ICS), which assists hospitals in improving their emergency management planning, response, and recovery capabilities for unplanned and planned events. HICS is consistent with ICS and the National Incident Management System (NIMS) principles. HICS will strengthen hospital disaster preparedness activities in conjunction with community response agencies and allow hospitals to understand and assist in implementing the 17 Elements of the hospital-based NIMS guidelines.

The HICS Guidebook, Job Action Sheets, Forms, etc. are available from the California Emergency Medical Services Authority web site. National Incident Management System (NIMS) Standardized Emergency Management System (SEMS) Incident Command System (ICS)
