HICS — Hospital Incident Command System


Western Safety Home Manufacturers Protective Clothing

 

Loading

The HEICS naming system has been updated to HICS — Hospital Incident Command System. The chart below shows the changes to the system. The vests used in the new system are all white with colored trim to indicate chain of command relationships.
Below is the OLD organization chart, just to show the differences

HICS Manuals
The new HICS manuals consists of 78 volumes corresponding to the new HICS organization chart shown above. There are also 3 System Guidebooks. The 3 guidebooks and samples of the new organization volumes are shown below. All volumes have their titles on the spine of the binder, as shown in the first red volume below.

Serious emergency situations occur when least expected, requiring personnel to perform with the utmost efficiency and professionalism. HICS is an industry recognized organizational chart that clearly defines a chain of command to assist hospitals in managing their staff in the event of a disaster. To implement this system, Western Safety Products offers three different HEICS vest models, available in standard color and legends.
