Event Description

Nursing Home Incident Command System (HCC-5000)

All nursing homes should be prepared for and exhibit resiliency when faced with any type of incident, ranging from an internal emergency that affects only one facility to a large, regional disaster that simultaneously affects many healthcare facilities and the community. The Incident Command System (ICS) provides a practical, proven approach to disaster management that is an integral part of the National Incident Management System (NIMS). ICS is utilized for incident management throughout the public and private sectors.
