Then find your goals…
STEP 2: Set concrete goals, tasks, dates and numbers you can track
Featuring 935 new and updated case-based questions, organized into seven core areas of process design, this Self-Assessment will help you identify areas in which Incident Command System improvements can be made.
Examples; 10 of the 935 standard requirements:
- How do you decide if a situation is to be be managed under an Incident Command System (ICS) or by any of the protocols in the new National Response Plan (NRP) or National Incident Management System (NIMS)?
- Develop disaster activation and notification procedures for a disaster during working and non working hours which answers questions as should the recovery team report to work in the middle of the night?
- Motivation. As the team leader for the project, you have several options. First, you should understand the current environment in your company. Are there competing pressures for time and resources?
- Has your facility identified and assessed potential emergency situations such as process failures, accidents, storms, floods, or other events that pose a threat to humans or the environment?
- Should you have separate wide area connectivity for your backup site that is sheltered from normal network traffic, either as a separate packet connection, or as a circuit like connection?
- Should state and local programs under development slow down or halt progress until new standards and procedures are identified by the National Emergency Responder Credentialing System?
- Will the organization consider allowing a vendor to self-insure for all or part of such risks provided the vendor produces evidence of the financial ability to self-insure such risks?
- Do you monitor security alerts and advisories from your system vendors, Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT) and other sources, taking appropriate and responsive actions?
- Has a meeting been held between the emergency management authority(ies), the medico-legal authority(ies), and the health authority(ies) to explore issues of coordination and control?
- Are rules being enforced to remove access by staff members who no longer have a need to know because they have changed assignments or have stopped working for the organization?
Complete the self assessment, on your own or with a team in a workshop setting. Use the workbook together with the self assessment requirements spreadsheet:
