When an emergency incident occurs, Hospital Incident Command positions need to be quickly identified. Hospital Incident Command Vests offer a simple solution. Identify team members and responsibilities easily using color coded vests with printed titles. A hospital should have an incident command vest for each incident command title in the Hospital Incident Management Team (HIMT) organizational chart. The Incident Command vests are available packaged as a complete set of HICS organization titles or individually packaged by HICS title. Evacuation Branch Vests are available that fit into the HICS hierarchy. Other identification vests are available with titles beyond the Incident Command Vests: Hospital Staff Vests, Decon Team Vests, and Decon Team Cooling Vests.
All HICS supplies are up-to-date with the HICS 2014 revisions.
