Event Description

Hospital Incident Command System (HICS) Course (SMRS0035)

Hospital Incident Command System (HICS) is a 4-hour course outlining an incident command system designed for hospitals and intended for use in both emergency and non-emergency situations. It provides hospitals of all sizes with tools helpful to advance their emergency preparedness and response capability—both individually and as members of the broader response community. 

HICS provides attendees the tools necessary to ensure the safety of patients, personnel, the facility, maintain business continuity, financial recovery, and restoration to “normal” operations.

  • Compliance with NIMS is a condition for any healthcare organization receiving Federal assistance.
  • Using ICS concepts and principles enables organizations to meet one component of NIMS compliance and promotes collaborative participation in a larger, national system.
  • NIMS promotes a coordinated effort among all primary and secondary response agencies to better prevent, prepare for, respond to, and recover from events and incidents.
