HICSi is an incident management system specifically designed to
aid hospitals and healthcare entities in developing and refining
their emergency management planning, response, and recovery
capabilities. HICS is consistent with Incident Command
System and the National Incident Management System (NIMS)
Disruption is now the norm, and hospitals must be prepared to
respond to multiple types of disasters – sometimes running
simultaneous responses or prolonged Incident Command Centers.
Learn from an emergency preparedness coordinator whose hospital
has opened HICSi 17 times in seven years, responding to a wide
variety of disasters. During this session, you’ll learn how to
engage staff and leaders in a meaningful way to build a living,
relevant EM program that has the strength to be flexible, adding
resilience to your team to emerge stronger after disasters.
