The purpose of this bulletin is distribution of the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), reference document entitled; “Simplified Guide to the Incident Command System for Transportation Professionals.” This document is provided as a courtesy of FHWA and for our purposes is intended to introduce the Incident Comment System (ICS) to stakeholders who may be called upon to provide specific expertise, assistance, or material during incidents, but who may be largely unfamiliar with ICS organization and operations. These stakeholders include professionals at transportation agencies, elected officials and government agency managers at all levels.

The Simplified Guide to the Incident Command System for Transportation Professionals is now available at the following website:

In addition, FHWA is especially interested in learning if readers have found the document to be of use. If so, please provide feedback to Laurie Radow, FHWA Transportation Specialist at 202-366-2855 or at
