    I really like the idea of a “laminated ICS chart.” Being able to have it visible for staff in a shelter, for example, would make it easy to post assignments especially when shifts are changing. Everyone, especially those not familiar with ICS, would understand the chain of command and who to go to for what, instead of always bugging the IC!!! Wow! They might know who the IC is!! I would have killed for that during Irene……
