Incident Action Plans (IAP)
  • IAP’s describe response goals, operational objectives, and support activities.
    • Include the measurable goals and objectives to be achieved. They are always prepared around a timeframe called an operational period.
    • Operational periods can be of various lengths, but should be no longer than 24 hours. Twelve-hour operational periods are common for large-scale incidents. At the beginning of an incident the time frame is often short, 2 - 4 hours.
  • The Incident Commander determines the length of the operational period based on the complexity and size of the incident.
