Implementing the Incident Command System (pbv)

ByDavid Carmicheal

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
[PAPERBACK VERSION] Every cultural repository needs two management structures: the day-to-day, business-as-usual hierarchy, and a “supercharged” management structure that takes over during a crisis. Emergency responders have used such a supercharged structure for years: the Incident Command System (ICS). The ICS can scale up to handle disasters that threaten large areas. But the ICS was designed to scale down as well as up. Few practitioners have shown how to use the ICS to manage an emergency within a single institution—until now. “Implementing the Incident Command System at the Institutional Level” explains how libraries, archives, and museums can adopt the ICS as a temporary management structure whenever ‘business as usual’ won’t get the job done. Whether you are preparing for fires and floods—or planning a major public event—the ICS is a proven management tool that safeguards lives, property, and priceless collections. Learn how to put it to use in your repository! (ISBN: 978-0-9829366-1-0)
