Questions and Answers
  • 1. 
    The Incident Command System used by an organization must meet the requirements of:
    • A. 

      Their state

    • B. 

      The Federal Government

    • C. 

      Local Emergency Management Agency

    • D. 

      National Incident Management System (NIMS)

  • 2. 
    Although most emergency situations are handled by local response organizations, during a major incident those organizations may need help from:
    • A. 

      Other local jurisdictions

    • B. 

      State responders

    • C. 

      Federal government

    • D. 

      All of the answers are correct

  • 3. 
    In a properly run ICS, each person working at an incident has only one direct supervisor. All orders and assignments come directly from that supervisor, and all reports are made to the same supervisor. This supervisor then reports to his or her own supervisor, and so on up the chain of command. This is known as: 
    • A. 

      Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs)

    • B. 

      Best practices

    • C. 

      Incident command

    • D. 

      Unity of command

  • 4. 
    In most situations, one person can effectively supervise only three to seven people (withfive being the optimal number). In the ICS setting, the incident commander (IC)communicates with and receives information from a maximum of five people, ratherthan assuming responsibility for the assignment of all personnel at the scene. Individualmanagers of personnel and resources within ICS also work within this same system.The actual span of control will depend on the complexity of the incident and the natureof the work being performed. This is known as:
    • A. 

      Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs)

    • B. 

      Best Practices

    • C. 

      Span of Control

    • D. 

      Unity of Command

  • 5. 
    This shared language eliminates confusion about what is intended when different things are called by the same name in different jurisdictions, counties, areas, or departments. For example, when identifying the geographical sides of a building, some organizations will identify each side by numbers (e.g., sides 1,2,3, or 4), while other organizations may use alphabetical references (e.g., alpha, bravo, charlie, or delta). This is known as:
    • A. 

      Common terminology

    • B. 

      Resource management

    • C. 

      Policies

    • D. 

      Guidelines

  • 6. 
    ICS must support communication up and down the chain of command at every level.Messages must move efficiently throughout the system. This consideration is especiallyimportant because it ensures that control objectives established by the command staffare effectively implemented by task-level resources. This is also necessary so thatoutcomes produced by these task-level units are reported back up the chain of command,allowing progress toward incident goals to be measured as the incident unfolds. Thisbest describes:
    • A. 

      Common terminology

    • B. 

      Resource management

    • C. 

      Integrated communications

    • D. 

      Chain of command

  • 7. 
    Development of a standard terminology for commonly needed operational facilities improves operations because everyone knows what goes on at each facility. Base, Command Post, and Staging Area are examples of standard terms related to:
    • A. 

      ICS

    • B. 

      NIMS

    • C. 

      Operational facilities matrix

    • D. 

      Designated incident facilities

  • 8. 
    A standard system of assigning and tracking the resources involved in the incident is of critical importance to ensuring an efficient and safe operation. At small-scale incidents, units and personnel usually respond directly to the scene and receive their assignments there. At large-scale incidents, units are often dispatched to a staging area, rather than going directly to the incident scene. Some units are assigned upon arrival, whereas others may be held in reserve, ready to be assigned if needed. This is best known as:
    • A. 

      Operational Staffing Matrix

    • B. 

      Resource management

    • C. 

      Standard Operating Procedure (SOP)

    • D. 

      Resource accountability

  • 9. 
    This command position is always filled and is initially established by the first unit on the scene. Ultimately, command is likely to be transferred to the senior arriving officer, unless organization policy or circumstances dictate that someone else would be more appropriate in this position.

    • A.
