About Community Preparedness
The Bureau of Community Preparedness (BCP) uses an all-hazards approach to integrate state and local public health jurisdictions for response to public health threats. The Center is organized according to the National Incident Management System, Incident Command Structure (ICS). Components of ICS include Command, Administration & Finance, Logistics, Operations and Planning. This structure allows for efficient management by integrating processes, personnel, communications and equipment on a day-to-day basis, as well as during emergencies.
