Incident Officer

From Marshals Guide

The Incident Officer (IO) is responsible for the efficient, safe running of the incident team.

At the start of the day the IO will pair up incident marshals & decide, in cooperation with the Post Chief, where to position them for the most effective handling of incidents. At bigger incidents the IO will decide how many marshals are needed & how they can best handle the incident.

IO exists as a separate grade, but in many cases the duties of the IO will be performed by an experienced incident marshal.

Some circuits do not use IOs & at Silverstone the IO's role differs from the norm at other circuits.
