3 Planning ProcessPlanned, organized, and implemented by senior leadership from multiple agencies operating under Unified Command.Complete buy-in from the top to the bottom that this was a major event for North Carolina and that it was going to be successful.Governor McCrorySecretary PerryCommissioner BakerI will admit that we were a little nervous about the Commissioner being the Incident Commander of a local event but we were open to the idea. My feelings are that an Incident Commander must serve three major functions to be successful.A good IC must allow his Command Staff to do there job and not be a micro manager.A good IC needs to manage the moral and keep all staff focused on the goal and objectives.A good IC needs to make an educated, decisive, decision when requested by the Command Staff.I can honestly tell you that Commissioner Baker is one of the best Incident Commanders that we have ever worked for and he is welcome in Moore County anytime.
