Any attached data should be clearly labeled as to format content and collection time, and should follow existing naming conventions and standards. Distribution. ICS 209 information is meant to be completed at the level as close to the incident as possible, preferably at the incident. Once the ICS 209 has been submitted outside the incident to a dispatch center or MACS element, it may subsequently be transmitted to various incident supports and coordination entities based on the support needs and the decisions made within the MACS in which the incident occurs. Coordination with public information system elements and investigative/intelligence information organizations at the incident and within MACS is essential to protect information security and to ensure optimal information sharing and coordination. There may be times in which particular ICS 209s contain sensitive information that should not be released to the public (such as information regarding active investigations, fatalities, etc.). When this occurs, the ICS 209 (or relevant sections of it) should be labeled appropriately, and care should be taken in distributing the information within MACS. All completed and signed original ICS 209 forms MUST be given to the incident’s Documentation Unit and/or maintained as part of the official incident record. Notes: To promote flexibility, only a limited number of ICS 209 blocks are typically required, and most of those are required only when applicable. Most fields are optional, to allow responders to use the form as best fits their needs and protocols for information collection. For the purposes of the ICS 209, responders are those personnel who are assigned to an incident or who are a part of the response community as defined by NIMS. This may include critical infrastructure owners and operators, nongovernmental and nonprofit organizational personnel, and contract employees (such as caterers), depending on local/jurisdictional/discipline practices. For additional flexibility only pages 1–3 are numbered, for two reasons: o Possible submission of additional pages for the Remarks Section (Block 47), and o Possible submission of additional copies of the fourth/last page (the “Incident Resource Commitment Summary”) to provide a more detailed resource summary. Block Number Block Title Instructions *1 Incident Name REQUIRED BLOCK. Enter the full name assigned to the incident. Check spelling of the full incident name. For an incident that is a Complex, use the word “Complex” at the end of the incident name. If the name changes, explain comments in Remarks, Block 47. Do not use the same incident name for different incidents in the same calendar year.

    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.
