The U.S. Coast Guard Incident Management Handbook (IMH) is designed to assist Coast Guard personnel in the use of the Incident Command System (ICS) during response operations. The IMH is intended to be used as an easy reference job aid for responders. It is not a policy document, but rather guidance for response personnel. During the development of the IMH, it was recognized that eighty percent of all response operations share common principles, procedures and processes. The other twenty-percent of response operations are unique to the type of incident, such as a search and rescue case or an oil spill. The handbook is laid out so that the generic information applicable to all responses is presented up-front. 

The IMH is intended to be used as a reference job aid for responders to provide a systematic response process bringing order out of the chaos of incident response. It is not a policy document but rather guidance for response personnel requiring judgment in application.
