National Incident Management System (NIMS) Part of Homeland Security Presidential Directive-5, February 28, Campuses must be NIMS compliant in order to receive federal DHS grant monies. NIMS provides a consistent nation-wide template to enable government, private-sector, and non-governmental organizations to work together during domestic incidents. Applicable across a full spectrum of potential incidents and hazard scenarios, regardless of size or complexity.
Incident Command System (ICS) What is ICS? ICS is primarily a command and control system delineating job responsibilities and organizational structure for the purpose of managing day-to-day operations for all types of emergency incidents. Using management best practices, ICS helps to ensure: The safety of responders and others. The achievement of tactical objectives. The efficient use of resources.
Unified Command Enables all responsible agencies to manage an incident together by establishing a set of incident objectives and strategies. Allows Incident Commanders to make joint decisions by establishing a single command structure. Maintains unity of command. Each employee only reports to one supervisor.
ISU’s Incident Command Structure
Campus Concept of Operations Initial Response Command Post Emergency Operations Center (EOC), if necessary Executive Policy Group Continuity of Operations Planning (COOP)
Campus Concept of Operations Initial Response › Scene Isolation & stabilization – First responders (i.e. Public Safety, police, fire). Command Post Operations › Scene management & resolution – Incident Commander from ISU, and depending on size, Incident Commanders from other local entities (police/fire), including their command staff, as needed (i.e. Liaison Officer, Safety Officer, Public Information Officer).
Campus Concept of Operations Command Post Operations – Consists of the following: The Incident Commander – Provides overall leadership for incident response. Delegates authority to others. Takes general direction from agency administrator/official. Public Information Officer – Information dissemination and media relations. Liaison Officer – Assists Incident Commander by serving as point of contact for agency representatives who are helping to support the operation (i.e., Executive Policy Group, other agencies, etc.) Safety Officer – Advises Incident Commander on issues regarding incident safety. Works with Operations Section to ensure safety of field personnel.
Campus Concept of Operations - The EOC
Campus Concept of Operations Executive Policy Group provides overall guidance (President, VPs, General Counsel, Human Resources) › Focus on impact to ISU › Organize and direct policy decisions › Insulate › Inform and update Deans & Directors › Politics › Senior Administrators must understand the Unified Command System › Incident Command Checklists for VPs, Deans & Directors can be found at the following webpages: &

What is COOP? COOP = Continuity of Operations COOP is an effort within individual departments to ensure the continued performance of minimum essential functions during a wide range of potential emergencies.
Purpose of COOP Planning Continue essential operations Ensure survivability of critical equipment, records and other assets Minimize business damage and losses Achieve orderly response and recovery from incident Ensure succession of key leadership
Campus Concept of Operations Provides an “All Hazards” campus wide operational plan Provides effective and efficient incident management, from pre- planning initial response through recovery Provides effective communications, internally and externally System for incident management while providing critical campus operations
Conclusion: What We Should be Doing Collaborating: Within ISU Cooperating: With our local first responders, other county/state government response agencies Creating: Innovative approaches to enhancing campus safety We must share the responsibility of protecting and preparing our community through inclusion and open lines of communication. That’s what coordinated response is all about.
