In a common typical organizational structure, there are clear lines of authorities and responsibilities. Every member of the staff has been assigned a specific task to be done. Each member performs his or her duties effectively and try to accomplish the objectives of the company.
When an incident happens, and that is not normal, and that escalates or expands, then each and every member in the line of the organizational structure comes in action, and all functions of the command and general staff are filled and the entire list of elements within each section.
