“ICS is the model tool for command, control, and coordination of a response and provides a means to coordinate the efforts of individual agencies as they work toward the common goal of stabilizing the incident and protecting life, property, and the environment.” ICS was organized to help people in big emergencies. Let’s say that the place you live in is about to flood. The ICS contacts the navy, the army, etc. to get you out before the place floods.
The ICS is used for many different reasons. When hazardous materials get into the air, they have to kill the bacteria in the air to make it healthy to breathe again. The ICS is also contacted for specially planned events like parades, parties, meetings, etc. They are also contacted if a fire has taken place or if somebody is lost or if something occurs that has several casualties. If any of these occurs or more, the ICS can handle it.
