An incident scene

Control is the management of all activities necessary for the resolution of an incident

In the initial phases of an incident, the Crew Leader on the first arriving appliance will usually become the Incident Controller. At this point, the incident is usually a Level 1 incident and can be managed at the location of the incident.

If the incident progresses and becomes larger or more complex, another person, usually an Officer, may come and take over the role of Incident Controller.
