INCIDENT COMMAND POST SUPPORT COMPANY OPERATIONS
Since 2010, LACoFD has assigned Incident Command Post Support Companies (ICPSC) to assist the Incident Commander (IC) during major emergencies. The ICPSC serves a critical function, allowing the IC to step back and focus on strategic and tactical priorities, firefighter safety, and developing contingencies to effectively manage an incident. This video focuses on the components of an ICPSC and the role each member plays during firefighting operations.
