 Incident Command Systems

 
The Incident Command System is part of the emergency management system in many levels (federal, state, and local). Every significant incident or event, whether large or small, and whether it is even defined as an emergency, requires certain management functions to be performed.
 
The Nursing Home Incident Command System (NHICS) and Assisted Living Incident Command System (ALICS) outline a management framework that empowers long-term care staff to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of their incident response -- no matter what shift, or what day of the week the event occurs.
 
ALICS is an AHCA/NCAL member benefit accessible by registration code. Please contact your State Affiliate​ to obtain your registration code and log-in at EM Alliance
