duration, additional infrastructure                        Division/Group

                                               21
     Expanding Command
    System Develops From Bottom up
   As the complexity of an incident
    increases and the span of control
    expands beyond 5 units, the need for
    the IC to appoint supervisory levels
    beyond that of single source officers is
    made simple with the appointment and
    creation of Divisions & Groups, and
    further building to Branches and if
    necessary, Sections
                                               22
       Unified Command
   A method for all agencies or individuals who
    have jurisdictional responsibility, and in some
    cases those who have functional responsibility
    at the incident, to contribute to:

    Determining overall objectives for incident

    Selection of a strategy to achieve the objectives



                                                   23
 De-Escalating Command

As an incident “winds down”, the Incident
  Commander can reverse the command
  transfer process and essentially de-
  escalate command to a lower ranking
  officer.

This will generally occur when command is
  transferred to the officer of the company
  who will be remaining on the scene.
