Working with Incident Roles
Incident roles are the incident command structure roles (e.g. Command, Operations, Safety Officer, etc.) that responders perform.
The main role to set is "Incident Command". This is valuable for your department records, to know who was in charge of this incident in case the report needs more details, but is also used for the "Officer In Charge" entry for NFIRS.
NOTE: Always set a "Command" (Incident Command) role. They "own" the report responsibility.
Selecting Incident Roles
Tap a role from above (e.g. Command) or any other the addition roles below and then tap one or more Firefighters to set their role.
Multiple Responders for One Incident Role
If multiple responders took command at various stages of the incident mark each as that role.
NOTE: Add any specifics (e.g. times and/or reason for transfer of the role) into the incident narrative so you have this information for department records.
One Responder with Multiple Incident Roles
If one or more responders took multiple roles at various stages of the incident mark their most significant contribution (e.g. they were operations for longer than they were command) or otherwise pick their highest ICS role.
NOTE: Add any specifics (e.g. times and/or reason for change of role) into the incident narrative so you have this information for department records.
