During most emergency situations, the use of a scene management system has been shown to improve coordination between responders, reduce confusion and panic, and diminish negative impact to the organization. Whether the event is a chemical spill, earthquake, tornado, gunman, bomb threat, fire, or other emergency, there are common event management and command tools that will make a difference. In addition, the desire for good public and media relations, threat of liability, genuine concern for employee welfare during an emergency, and some Federal and State laws all require that pre-emergency planning and incident command systems be put in place and followed.
