7 Current Incident Size or Area Involved (use unit label – e.g., “sq mi,” “city block”) Enter the appropriate incident descriptive size or area involved (acres, number of buildings, square miles, hectares, square kilometers, etc.). Enter the total area involved for incident Complexes in this block, and list each sub-incident and size in Remarks (Block 47). Indicate that the size is an estimate, if a more specific figure is not available. Incident size may be a population figure rather than a geographic figure, depending on the incident definition and objectives. If the incident involves more than one jurisdiction or mixed ownership, agencies/organizations may require listing a size breakdown by organization, or including this information in Remarks (Block 47). The incident may be one part of a much larger event (refer to introductory instructions under “Preparation). Incident size/area depends on the area actively managed within the incident objectives and incident operations, and may also be defined by a delegation of authority or letter of expectation outlining management bounds. 8 Percent (%) Contained or Completed (circle one) Enter the percent that this incident is completed or contained (e.g., 50%), with a % label. For example, a spill may be 65% contained, or flood response objectives may be 50% met. *9 Incident Definition REQUIRED BLOCK. Enter a general definition of the incident in this block. This may be a general incident category or kind description, such as “tornado,” “wildfire,” “bridge collapse,” “civil unrest,” “parade,” “vehicle fire,” “mass casualty,” etc. 10 Incident Complexity Level Identify the incident complexity level as determined by Unified/Incident Commanders, if available or used. *11 For Time Period REQUIRED BLOCK. Enter the time interval for which the form applies. This period should include all of the time since the last ICS 209 was submitted, or if it is the initial ICS 209, it should cover the time lapsed since the incident started. The time period may include one or more operational periods, based on agency/organizational reporting requirements. From Date/Time Enter the start date (month/day/year). Enter the start time (using the 24-hour clock). To Date/Time Enter the end date (month/day/year). Enter the end time (using the 24-hour clock). APPROVAL & ROUTING INFORMATION *12 Prepared By REQUIRED BLOCK. When an incident management organization is in place, this would be the Situation Unit Leader or Planning Section Chief at the incident. On other incidents, it could be a dispatcher in the local emergency communications center, or another staff person or manager. Print Name Print the name of the person preparing the form. ICS Position The ICS title of the person preparing the form (e.g., “Situation Unit Leader”).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
