An incident commander’s scope of authority comes from the incident action plan
The Correct Answer:
The statement “An incident commander’s scope of authority comes from the incident action plan” is True
The scope of authority of an incident commander is generally derived from the existing agency policies, procedures, or laws. These can also be derived through the authority delegation from elected officials or agency administration. Whenever the ratio of supervisor-to-subordinate exceeds the span of the manageable control, branches, sections, groups, and divisions, then incident commander scope is established.
