New WebEOC instructional: Video



The Hospital Incident Command System (HICS V) has finally been updated for 2014. It has some excellent new information in both content and format. As with the last version I will be making a web based "cheat" sheet so that you can have a condensed web based version in one place. In addition I am completing the same thing for the Nursing Homes Incident Command System (NHICS). I should have both of these out this summer.

In the mean time, here is the links to the new HICS for 2014:

Working with the California Association of Health Facilities Disaster Preparedness Program, we just completed work on this new interactive program. This is a new (June 2014) Nursing Home Incident Command System NHICS interactive Organizational Chart. It is in "draft" mode, please let me know if there are any bad links or spelling typos.

Direct online link>>>>>

Instructions for download and install on your computer(s): Here is the Zipped file Download to your hard drive, unzip to the location you prefer. To run, simple click on the file named: NHICS_ORG_CHART.htm (it will then open in your browser). You can also make a "shorcut" to this file on your desktop of your computer or put whole folder on a USB thunb drive. Please note that you can modify each job action sheet to suit your facilities needs, just make sure not to change that name of the document when done (it links on the exact name). Please open the contact spreadsheet and cut and paste your facilities contacts and also open up your facilities emergency operation plan document and copy and paste your facilities plan into this embedded document being sure not to rename the origional. If you have any questions please contact me.
