DEMOBILIZATION CHECKOUT (IMS 221)
Purpose: The Demobilization Check-Out (IMS 221) ensures that resources checking out of the incident have completed all appropriate incident business, and provides the Planning Section information on resources released from the incident. Demobilization is a planned process and this form assists with that planning.
Preparation: The IMS 221 is initiated by the Planning Section, or a Demobilization Unit Leader if designated. The
Demobilization Unit Leader completes the top portion of the form and checks the appropriate boxes in Block 6 that may need attention after the Resources Unit Leader has given written notification that the resource is no longer needed. The individual resource will have the appropriate overhead personnel sign off on any checked box(es) in Block 6 prior to release from the incident.
Distribution: After completion, the IMS 221 is returned to the Demobilization Unit Leader or the Planning Section. All completed original forms must be given to the Documentation Unit. Personnel may request to retain a copy of the IMS 221.
Note: Members are not released until form is complete when all of the items checked in Block 6 have been signed off. If additional pages are needed for any form page, use a blank IMS 221 and repaginate as needed.
