CO-S-TR Guide for Initial Incident Actions
Hick, J. (2010). CO-S-TR Guide for Initial Incident Actions.
This poster/reference card provides the key components of the CO-S-TR model which may be a helpful visual reference for hospital incident command personnel as they prioritize and address key components of surge capacity. "CO" stands for command, control, communications, and coordination; "S" refers to staff, stuff, space, and special (event-specific) considerations; and "TR" comprises tracking, triage, treatment, and transportation. These healthcare-specific considerations complement incident command.
