If you have been in airport emergency management for any length of time, you know that incident command can be a challenge. Off-airport responders often are not familiar with the airport environment; there are challenges with who the incident commander should be and where the lines of authority are drawn. Even if you think you have "solved" these problems, you may not be happy with those solutions. ICS for Airports provides you with three different strategies for implementing an effective airport incident command system or revising an existing program. Even if you don't wholly implement these programs, you will come away with ideas for improving your incident management effectiveness.
