Coffee Break Training: Medical Group Versus Medical Unit   [open pdf - 344KB]

"In the National Incident Management System (NIMS), the Incident Command System (ICS) is an organizational structure that allows responders to match the complexities and demands of each incident while allowing all responders to know their roles and work together across jurisdiction and agencies' boundaries. The medical components of the ICS organization fill two key roles. One is external; the management of patients generated by responding to the incident/event. The other is internal; the management of responders requiring medical attention."
