Command support stations

As part of the Incident Command Team mobilisation, operational crews may be mobilised from appointed retained stations, according to the size of the incident.  They act in support of the ICT gathering information from the incident scene, delivering messages, marshalling vehicles, etc.

Whilst any appliance crews could be used for this task, first choice is given to using retained personnel from Basingstoke, Rushmoor, Eastleigh, Portchester and Beaulieu.  These fire stations have been given additional training and equipment for this purpose.

Additionally, each time the ICT is mobilised a wholetime officer is mobilised to take overall charge of the ICT and command support crews in the role of 'Command Support Officer'.  Wherever possible this officer will be one of selected officers who have received additional training for this role.
