4.9 Decision Making

A unified incident command system was established and most organizations involved in the incident had representatives at the command center, including local, state, and federal entities. Meetings were held at least twice a day and possibly more.

There is no dedicated emergency operations facility for Aiken County, and as a result, the incident command center was moved several times during the incident.
