Public Health Emergency - Leading a Nation Prepared
Jurisdiction incident management (Tier 3) and its emergency management operations support are critically important to maximizing MSCC. In a mass casualty and/or mass effect event, Tier 3 is the management level that effectively coordinates activities among the multiple and disparate entities involved in response for that jurisdiction. Because of its obligation to the community, Tier 3 is responsible for defining incident objectives and an overall response strategy for the community. Data from various response disciplines are aggregated and analyzed at Tier 3. Thus, the jurisdictional information processing function is critical in promoting timely application of community resources to support urgent medical care at individual HCOs (Tier 1).
