Hospital Incident Command System (HICS) is an incident management system based on principles of the Incident Command System (ICS), which assists hospitals and health care organizations in improving their emergency management planning, response, and recovery capabilities for unplanned and planned events.


The New Mexico Hospital Association is offering a 5-part, self-paced webinar series hosted by HSS, at no cost to our member hospitals.
