4. The Effective time and date of the transfer

When command is transferred, then all personnel involved in the incident should be told: The Effective time and date of the transfer.


Explanation:

One of the main features of ICS is a procedure to transfer command with minimal disruption to the incident. This procedure may be used any time personnel in supervisory positions change. Whenever possible, transfer of command should:

  • Take place face-to-face
  • Include a complete briefing that captures essential information for continuing safe and effective operations

The effective time and date of the transfer of command should be communicated to all personnel involved in the incident.
