 These responsibilities include:

  •  Setting up an appropriate Field Command Post (FCP)

  •  Assigning command staff and the Section OIC as needed.

  • Conducting initial briefing.

  •  Activating elements of the Incident Command System / Crisis Management Team.

  •  Ensuring that planning and intelligence meetings are conducted, if necessary.

  • Approving and authorizing the implementation of an incident action plan.

  • Establishing a flow of pertinent information for command personnel.

  • Coordinating staff activity.
