Coordination leadership at the Joint Field Office is provided by Unified Coordination Group.
In the Incident Command System (ICS), the Unified Coordination Group (UCG) is responsible for providing coordination leadership at the Joint Field Office (JFO). The JFO is a temporary, on-site facility that is typically established in the aftermath of a disaster or emergency in order to support the response and recovery efforts. It is typically managed by the UCG, which is a team of senior officials from various federal, state, and local agencies who are responsible for coordinating the overall response effort.
The UCG is typically led by a Federal Coordinating Officer (FCO), who is responsible for coordinating the efforts of all federal agencies that are involved in the response. The UCG also includes representatives from other agencies and organizations, such as state and local governments, non-governmental organizations, and private sector partners, who are involved in the response effort.
The UCG is responsible for providing overall coordination leadership at the JFO, and for ensuring that the response to the incident is effective, efficient, and coordinated. This may include developing and implementing incident action plans, coordinating the deployment of resources, establishing communication channels, and managing logistics. The UCG is also responsible for ensuring that the needs of the affected community are being met, and for coordinating the efforts of all responding agencies and organizations to ensure that they are working together effectively.
