personnel” is a trained personnel, an independent private employee who has a special responsibility in the emergency care system. According to this article authors no longer need “all personnel,” since a person has the right to participate in an emergency program, should be eligible in that specific area. An effective worker is required and he/she must possess important knowledge, skills, and understanding of the work environment, especially health planning. (Barbara et al.,2007)

Responsibilities of “All personnel” vary depending on the choice or role played. Although the authors of the article are not very important for health professionals, it seems that they are asking for more, because the whole role of the health care provider is different from other roles of other trained professionals. As a result, since there are several positions in the health sector, the skills and knowledge required to obtain a certain degree of employment are also small. In such a role, healthcare providers should know how to explain all aspects of the incident and how to respond to emergency. In this article, the authors are defining certain set of rules for the “All personnel” to be able to hold that charge. Because due to certain responsibilities, the situation demands the “All personnel” to be very professional in every case, in the same role you should be able to demonstrate the level of training that works in the principles of an incident management system. (Barbara et al.,2007)

According to Barbera et al. (2007), ‘All Personnel (AP)’ involves any administrator, professional staff, licensed independent practitioner, and an employee with a particular responsibility in an emergency operation plan of a healthcare system. According to the article, Barbera and his colleagues, are not demanding too much from ‘All Personnel’ since for an individual to qualify to be a professional in an emergency operation plan, he or she is supposed to be competent in the area. A competent healthcare professional is supposed to have significant knowledge, skills, and understanding of the area of work, particularly the healthcare setting.

The responsibilities of ‘All Personnel’ vary depending on the area of specialization or the role played. Though the authors of the article are not demanding much from the healthcare professionals, it appears as if they are asking too much because every healthcare provider’s role is different from the roles of other professionals. Therefore, since there are several positions in a healthcare setting, the skills and knowledge required for the qualification of the positions are also several, but at an individual level, they are few. For example, for a healthcare professional to qualify in working in a general Incident Command System when responding or recovering an emergency, there is particular proficiency recommended for primary competency at an operational level Barbera et al. (2007). In such a role, the healthcare professional is supposed to know how to describe every aspect involved in the Incident Command System. On the same role, an individual is supposed to have skills of demonstrating an operational proficiency level in the principles of the Incident Command System. Such knowledge and skills required in a particular role are different from other knowledge and skills required in another role. In other words, the authors are just describing the minimum requirements for an individual to qualify as an ‘All Personnel’.
