Command Portability: Transform any vehicle into a Command Post

I have yet to see an EMS vehicle with excess storage space, and EMS command vehicles that carry MCI gear have even less space. At major incidents and prolonged deployments, the ability for EMS command to be visible, under adequate cover and organized, as well as manage data and review guidelines, are all important. Here are six products that can help you initiate command operations long before the mobile-home-size command post arrives on scene. The big bonus: All six products will fit inside a mid-size duffel bag.



NIMS Incident Command System Field Guide

By this time almost everyone involved inEMS should have been through National Incident Management System (NIMS) training. But if you were quizzed on the roles and responsibilities of operations, planning, logistics, finance and intelligence today, would you pass? Informed Publishing's field guide comes packed with information and checklists to ensure important functions are not forgotten. If your eyes glazed over during NIMS training, be sure to keep this waterproof, alcohol-fast field guide handy. The NIMS Incident Command System Field Guide retails for $21.95.
