Phase 1 allows for a real-time summary of the incident occurring, what has happened since first responding to what will need to occur until the incident ends. Objectives can be broken down into plans already in action and those that need to be done or planned for in an organized fashion. It also helps by preparing for any events or actions that may limit plans being made or having to be made, such as transportation issues or communication issues. Phase 1 helps to keep a timeline in real-time as to when objectives need completion or are complete. Phase 1 allows Incident Command to plan out different sections that will be required from the onset of the incident and what may be needed in terms of expansion as the incident progresses, it also helps to determine when downsizing may be required. It helps Incident Command keep a real-time running list when resources are added and are in standby status, when they went into active status, and when they are deactivated.

Financing an Event Any event needs funding. In terms of a significant event, funding can become a much- needed service to support incident management in terms of response and recovery when there is a specific need for services that a jurisdiction cannot otherwise handle. The Finance/Administration Section should be established in a large or complex event requiring significant funding from multiple sources. Costs and finances must be tediously and thoroughly recorded no matter the size of an event. Actual cost totals, current funds available, and potential funds needed as the event progresses will need to be communicated to the Incident Commander; this allows the Incident Commander to forecast needs for the event before any operations are affected. These are all responsibilities of the Finance/Administration Section, as well as managing all the activities related to cost summaries and contracts for supplies and services, as well as reimbursement issues for all levels of government (Walsh et al., 2012). According to Walsh (2012), not all events will require the Finance/Administration Section to be added to the ICS system. With smaller events, this function can be handled by a technical specialist in the Planning Section; however, significant complex incidents should have the Finance/Administration Section added.

    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.
