The Tampa Bay Health & Medical Preparedness Coalition is pleased to provide the Hospital Incident Command Course (HICS) for it's member organizations. This blended program is being conducted to assist member organizations in meeting new CMS rules regarding exercise participation.

This HICS Course provides a working foundation of the Incident Command concepts, as applied to the hospital environment.

It describes the incident command system, which can be used by facilities regardless of size or resident care capabilities, and is intended to assist with their emergency planning and response efforts for all hazards.
