The Incident Command System (ICS) is one component of the
National Incident Management System or (NIMS). The Assisted Living Incident
Command System or “ALICS” is a simplified ICS and through its use, long-term
care providers can become part of this standardized system of efficient response.
ICS was modified by two consultants for assisted living and reviewed by AALNA
board members and then reviewed by the NCAL Workgroup of the AHCA/NCAL
Emergency Preparedness Committee.
ALICS offers long-term care providers a flexible framework
for command and control that is based on the standardized system of ICS. It
does this through a system that is designed to:
all emergency, routine, or planned events, of any size or type, by
establishing a clear chain of command and a process for communication,
personnel from different agencies or departments to be integrated into a
common structure that can effectively address issues and delegate
needed logistical and administrative support to operational personnel.
