A Re-Framing of Incident Management Structures

We are taking a look at re-framing of the Incident Management Structures. It has been over 50 years since FIRESCOPE “created” the Incident Command System and the Incident Management Structures.  Is it time to re-frame how emergency management and response operates? 


Timothy Ricker writes“After examining these models, I think most will agree that in incident management we really do use the Team of Teams model, but not to the fullest extent. Why is that? I think it’s primarily because we graphically depict our organizations using the Command model and so much of our mindset is fixated on that structure and a perceived rigidity of the positions and flow within that structure. Sure, the Command model is cleaner and less intimidating, but it psychologically predisposes us to silos. In ICS, for example, we do have people coordinating across sections, but aside from the ‘scripted’ activities (i.e. those within the Planning Process), it seems to not come easily. “
