Each community should keep an inventory of non-perishable animal-care supplies and equipment on hand (e.g., in an ACO storage room, trailer, or POD) The amount should be sufficient for respone to a minor incident or for the first phase of a more severe one. Assuming basic office and custodial supplies are always on hand, a minimal inventory might include: Supplies or Equipment
Estimated Cost
Disinfectant – household bleach (6 gallons) Disposable poop bags (or newspaper bags) N95 surgical respirator masks (box of 10) Pre-prepared forms and standard operating procedures (SOPs)
 Forms and SOPs on-line with the Operating Manual, standardized insofar as possible to increase interoperability among shelters  Set up accounts to accept donated funds o Credit card o Cash and checking account – in case there is no electrical or phone service
Note: In the Incident Command System, the number of response personnel varies with the size and severity of the incident. Command increases and decreases the responsbility of each supervisor to achieve a manageable span of control (normally, 1 supervisor for 4-6 persons). Hence, in a small incident, each staff member serves several roles and in a larger incident, fewer.  Command staff for shelter (based on incident-specific ICS), e.g.: o Shelter Manager o Safety Officer o Liaison o Operations o Animal Health o Logistics o Planning o Public Information Officer  General staff (functional responsibility for primary segments of management) o Registration / Intake o Dogs o Cats o Isolation  Core staff (pre-designated and/or paid)  Local volunteers, e.g. associated with a local pound or shelter  Food, water, safety and emergency medical care

The Incident Command System is a standardized management tool for meeting the
demands of small or large emergency or non-emergency situations. It evolved following
a series of catastrophic fires in California's urban interface in the 1970s when it was
determined that response problems were far more likely to result from inadequate
management than from any other single reason. The ICS represents "best practices" and
has become the standard for emergency management in the U.S.
The ICS is a key element of the National Incident Management System (NIMS). As stated
The ICS is a management system designed to enable effective and efficient domestic incident management by integrating a combination of facilities, equipment, personnel, procedures, and communications operating within a common organizational structure, designed to enable effective and efficient domestic incident management. A basic premise of ICS is that it is widely applicable. It is used to organize both near-term and long-term field-level operations for a broad spectrum of emergencies, from small to complex incidents, both natural and manmade. ICS is used by all levels of government – federal, state, local, and tribal –as well as by many private-sector and nongovernmental organizations. ICS is also applicable across disciplines. It is normally structured to facilitate activities in five major functional areas: command, operations, planning, logistics, and finance and administration. The Incident Command System (ICS) is critical to the success of emergency operations such as this. All managerial and volunteer personnel involved in an emergency animal shelter should be familiar wit An excellent starting point for learning about ICS is the(FEMA). It includes links to the following topics: This 23-page document provides a concise description of the ICS including definitions, functions, organizational structure, position descriptions, etc. It is highly recommended. The Emergency Management Institute (EMI) offers more than 40 independent study courses for people who have emergency management responsibilities and the general public. For most courses, you will need to download and print the materials. Others are interactive and can be taken directly over the internet on the NETC Virtual Campus. Courses are free-of-charge. Relevant classroom courses available from the FEMA Emergency Management Institute (EMI) include:  ICS-100: Introduction to ICS (EMI Course Number: IS100)  ICS-200: ICS for Single Resources and Initial Action Incidents (EMI  ICS-300: Intermediate ICS for Expanding Incidents (EMI Course  ICS-400: Advanced ICS Command and General Staff -- Complex Independent study courses are linked to the FEMA on roles and responsibilities of ICS positions that can be downloaded as MSWord or PDF documents.
