Unified command is typically established during multi-agency or multi-jurisdictional incidents, with each agency or jurisdiction retaining its own command structure and authority. The individuals representing each participating agency or jurisdiction in the unified command structure share the responsibility and authority for decision-making and coordinating the response efforts.
