When The Command Is Transferred, The Process Should Include?

According to the FEMA IS-100.C Instructor Guide, “the transfer of command process always includes a thorough transfer of command briefing, which may be oral, written, or a combination of both“. The guide further explains that “at the appropriate time, notice of a change in incident command should be made to: Agency headquarters, General Staff members (if designated), Command Staff members (if designated), All incident personnel“.

The transfer of command is a critical process in the Incident Command System that ensures continuity and effectiveness of operations. For instance, in a prolonged disaster response operation, the transfer of command might occur to allow the current Incident Commander to rest.
