The Hospital Incident Command System (HICS V) has finally been updated for 2014. It has some excellent new information in both content and format. (software update -bug fixes-1/30/2015)

SMRRC Web Based Org Chart: Please use this web based org chart with the following instructions:

Use online directly from this link: Org ChartHICSV_thumb

Or download to your computer/laptop with this link: Org Chart Download (Zipped File)

With the download version, you can modify the contact spreadsheet (emergency_contacts.xlxs) and any of the Job Action sheets or your Hospital Incident Action Plan (EOP.docx). Be sure to keep the same file name and location after you modify, so that all the reference web links to that file are not broken. Use the file called (HICSV_new2.htm) to open in your browser, once you open the zipped file (just double clicking that file should open it all up). If you have questions please give me a call or email. – Paul Weiss

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.

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.

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.
