    Green lights to mark the IC have been used in my area for almost 20 years, every command unit has one, but Ive never heard of it being an NFPA or NIMS thing.

    My dept in Michigan has a green light mounted on top of the Batt Chief's vehicle. It is used occasionally. The walk in rescue also has a flag and a light in the event it is used for a CP.

    I believe it MAY be a California thing that command posts have to have green lights... I've seen it on some of the LA firetrucks (HAZMAT Squad 80 I think?) Its a pierce with the slide-out command center dealy, and if I remember correctly it has a green rotator above it. Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong. Not a bad idea for NIMS to do something like that, it would be the first easy decision they ever made. Would interfere with green being volunteer EMS in some places though.

    Most of our Battalion cars have green "Kojack" lights that were to be utilized the location of the command post when it was in the area of the car.

    I don't think I have ever seen one used.

    The best way to find the command post is to know your officers and look to see where the Chief is.That's usually where it is,but I could be wrong.

    There is no requirement to have a green light at the command post.

    NIMS requires that a command post is established and it's location is clearly identfied verbally or by radio to all responders. There is no NIMS requirement for a green light at the command post.
