Incident Response System/ Incident Management System/ Incident Command System
Incident Response System is an Indian version of Incident Command/Management System adopted by NDMA. This system and terminologies are used worldwide to address and manage emergencies at a global level.
This System is a standardized approach to the command, control, and coordination of emergency response providing a common hierarchy within which responders from multiple agencies can be effective.
An effective mechanism for reducing ad-hoc measures in response. Aligned with International Protocols and Terminologies in managing emergency response. A composite team with various Sections to attend to all the possible response requirements. The IRS designates officers to perform various duties and get them trained in their respective roles.
It also emphasizes the need for proper documentation of various activities for better planning, accountability and analysis. This will greatly help in reducing chaos and confusion during the response phase. Everyone will know what needs to be done, who will do it and who is in command.
EGSS prepares ICS/IRS/IMS based on the national and international codes and standards like NFPA, NDMA, NBC.
This System is a standardized approach to the command, control, and coordination of emergency response providing a common hierarchy within which responders from multiple agencies can be effective. We determine and define the teams and their members, respective roles and responsibilities and equipment required to perform their duties.
All IRS teams come together to manage emergency response effectively benefitting the international level coordination during the time of emergencies. A perfect example can be seen of Covid-19 pandemic, when India gave and took help to/from different nations.
LEAVE AD-HOC MEASURES, GO FOR PERMANENT CONTROL SYSTEM
