CONSOLIDATED INCIDENT ACTION PLAN (IMS 1001)
Consolidated Incident Action Plan
Purpose: This form documents the actions developed by the Incident Commander and the Command and General Staff during Planning Meetings. When all attachments are included, the plan specifies the objectives, strategies, tactics, resources, organization, communications plan, medical plan, and other appropriate information for use in managing an incident response for the next operational period.
Structure: This IAP includes information from other IMS forms. Information may be directly inputted in designated cells (above), or attached separately (below). As IMS forms are completed throughout the Planning Cycle, this information will be included in the IAP as available/finalized.
Preparation: IMS 1001 is completed following each formal Planning Meeting, conducted by the Incident or EOC Commander and the Command and General Staff. The IAP is completed by the Planning Section and must be approved by the Incident or EOC Commander prior to distribution
Distribution: The completed IAP may be circulated electronically, in hard-copy and/or posted on a status board. Sufficient copies should be distributed to all supervisory personnel at the Section, Branch, Division/Group, Sector/Unit levels, in addition to Assisting and Supporting organizations.
Note: Should the Incident/EOC Commander or Planning Section Chief prefer, the IMS 1001 may be substituted by other IMS forms to create the IAP. In this case, the IMS 202 would become the IAP cover page and additional IMS forms attached to create a full IAP. This is particularly useful when computer/printing facilities are not readily available and forms are completed in hard-copy.
