Read the attached Racoon City Fire 201 document. A 201 is an Incident Briefing Form. This is the incident that you will be working on for subsequent modules as you work to complete components of an Incident Action Plan (IAP). Assume for this and future assignments that the incident in this briefing is true and accurate, including the date and times given to you to fill in on the forms.

Follow the steps below to complete this assignment.

Step 1 – Go to FEMA’s ICS Resources website by going to: https://training.fema.gov/emiweb/is/icsresource/index.htm

Step 3 – Locate the ICS form entitled ICS Form 203, Organization Assignment List (v2).pdf

Step 4 – Using the attached Incident Resources – Personnel Document complete the ICS Form 203, Organization Assignment List. You will notice on the Incident Resources – Personnel Document a list of names and next to each of the names you will notice various descriptors. These descriptors are the typing levels that each of the individuals has achieved.

When filling out the form take these typing/qualifications into consideration.

You need to assign EVERY resource on the Incident Resources-Personnel Document to a position on the ICS Form 203 Organization Assignment List document.
