Why Command Post Solutions for Your National Incident Management?
Command Post Solutions created Easy IAP to provide emergency planners a new model for their disaster response needs. Our software is the simple answer to the complex paperwork burden of the Incident Action Plan (IAP). At the core of the National Incident Management System (NIMS) is the Incident Command System (ICS) but the heart of NIMS/ICS is the Incident Action Plan. The IAP consists of numerous, complex and repetitive forms that, quite honestly, is a major roadblock to the full integration of day to day operations of NIMS/ICS. If Incident Commanders and Disaster Planners wait for a disaster to learn how to create an IAP, well it will be like trying to fill out your income tax forms when your house is on fire. Not a great opportunity for success!!

Easy IAP digitized the approved standard FEMA/ICS forms and the burden of filling out the required the forms is replaced by a simple to use wizard.

The software standardizes all the requirements of an IAP as mandated by the National Incident Management System (NIMS), Incident Command System, – meeting the requirements of Homeland Security Presidential Directive 5 for all emergency responders. This system is so simple to use Police and Fire departments use Easy IAP to create IAPs for non-disaster events such as parades and sporting events.
