ICS (incident command system)

This essay will be on the SAR (search and rescue) Incident command system.

In any incident, let’s say a natural disaster, such as a flood happens, the way SAR respond, is by setting up an incident command system (ICS). This is basically a command system, assigning different people to different stations.

But before we go on, there are some concepts that the ICS has

Unity of command – recognisable chain of command

Common Terminology – standard code words 

Management by objective – work towards objectives 

Flexible Modular Organisation – operation can grow or diminish

Span of control – no one will manage more than seven people.

The first person in the chain of command, is the incident commander, who draws up a plan and has the power to direct the operation. Next are the general command staff, a Safety officer, a Liason officer and a Public Information Officer. These three staff officers split up the operation up into three sections, so as not to cause chaos. This command system helps everyone to work together until the operation has terminated. 


Science 8. YouTube week 2

Where I’m at, YouTube WEEK 2

I have recently started to make a YouTube channel and in this essay, I will be describing were I’m at so far. Even before I started the RonPaul science section on YouTube, I wanted to make a channel and the lessons that I have watched have greatly enhanced my knowledge on the matter. 

So far, I have found the content of my vids and found my target audience and value proposition, have set up my basic channel, uploaded my channel Icon, put up my channel name and have written my about page. So let me describe some of these. The content will be lego star wars stop-motion and my target audience are people who like star wars and lego and who enjoy watching those put together in stop-motion videos. This leads to my value proposition, which is offering the world quality stop-motion videos to be enjoyed. My channel name is: Galaxy Brick Films and my channel Icon is a star wars character. My about page is complete and it basically describes my value proposition and content. 

I have not been able to make a channel banner, but am still working on it.
