Resource Request Form
Purpose: The Resource Request Form (IMS 260) is used to request and track resources that are required for an incident.
Preparation: Generally, IMS 260 is initiated by the Requestor and submitted to the EOC Liaison, who in turn, submits the document to the EOC Logistics Section. The EOC Logistics Section will assign the resource request to the appropriate Branch and Unit Supply Facilities, to fill the request either from its inventories or by exercising its purchasing authority. IMS 260 must be approved by the Operations Section Chief and circulated to the Logistics, Finance & Admin, and Planning Sections to complete their respective portions.
Distribution: Completed forms are distributed to appropriate Branches and Units within the Logistics Section (generally the Supply Unit or Facilities Unit). When information is not immediately available, it may be inserted as/when received.
