Homeland Security & Emergency Management Training
Hospital Incident Command System (HICS) Training
GP Strategies delivers HICS training designed to help you understand your
responsibilities, define your chain of command, recognize when to activate your
emergency command system, and plan for all other variables necessary for handling
any incident—natural or man-made—in an effective and consistent manner.
In a mass casualty incident, it is vital that hospitals have a consistent command
structure and communications flow with other hospitals and responders. The
Hospital Incident Command System (HICS) is the standard for an incident
command system for use by hospital-based personnel. GP Strategies’ HICS
course will help you develop an effective plan.
Learn the essential elements of a HICS structure.
GP Strategies’ course lays the foundation for the reporting structures and establishment
of functional groups to respond to an event. This course contains pre-established
job action sheets that assist the user in determining what steps to follow. Major
corporations and healthcare systems have used and tested this process, and
HICS is applauded for its flexibility and provision of direction to those
in leadership positions.
GP Strategies integrates National Incident Management System (NIMS)
material into the training so that the audience is able to understand the directive,
the many NIMS components, and how the NIMS affects
planning and response as they relate to the HICS model. In addition,
the program demonstrates how HICS effectively utilizes the
ICS structure found in NIMS. The training program reinforces
the structure and organization, and other components as described in NIMS
material throughout the course.
