Ordering process changes for 2006 l.jpg
Ordering Process Changes for 2006

  • National Interagency Radio Support Cache (NIRSC) radio systems and kits will be requested on a ROSS Equipment Order through established ordering channels to the National Interagency Coordination Center (NICC).

    • Includes: All 4000 series kits & systems, MAFFS Base Station, Global Star Satellite Phones, and Technisonic Aircraft Radios.


Ordering process changes for 20064 l.jpg
Ordering Process Changes for 2006

  • NFES sub-parts to the NIRSC radio kits and systems will continue to be ordered as supplies, but ordered cache to cache.

    • Examples: Antenna, speaker/mic, cloning cable, etc.


General ordering guidelines l.jpg
General Ordering Guidelines

  • Mobile Cache Support Vans (NFES 2069), 500 Person Medical Kits (NFES 1835), Fire Remote Automatic Weather Stations (NFES 5869), Project Remote Automatic Weather Stations (NFES 5870), and all NIRSC radio systems and kits must be ordered through the geographic area coordination centers (GACC).

  • Atmospheric Theodolite Meteorological Units (ATMU) must be ordered through NICC at National Preparedness Levels 4 and 5.


General ordering guidelines6 l.jpg
General Ordering Guidelines

  • Local dispatch centers order direct to their geographical area National Interagency Support Cache (NISC) for NFES supplies not available from their local cache (excluding previously mentioned items which must be ordered through the GACC).

  • Type 1 and 2 Incident Management Teams may also order direct to the supporting NISC for NFES supplies (excluding previously mentioned items which must be ordered through the GACC) with concurrence from the hosting agency.


General ordering guidelines7 l.jpg
General Ordering Guidelines

  • Prior to ordering please call the 24-hr phone number (_____) to alert the supporting NISC of the pending order, followed by faxing the order to (_____). Always confirm fax receipt and legibility.

  • Resource orders sent to the supporting NISC with multiple request numbers (on the same page) requiring different shipping methods or destinations, must be faxed on separate pages. Each faxed resource order should only show the request numbers to be shipped together to one destination. Line through (black out) request numbers not being shipped in the same manner or to the same destination.


General ordering guidelines8 l.jpg
General Ordering Guidelines

  • Orders for NFES supplies not available from the supporting NISC will be forwarded by that cache to the nearest NISC able to fill. However, before doing so the incident must confirm that it requires the supplies and the quantity specified. The supporting NISC may recommend a suitable substitute or local purchase.


General ordering guidelines9 l.jpg
General Ordering Guidelines

  • Ordering efficiency will be improved if the incident initially checks stocking locations in the current NFES Catalog for each supply requested.

  • Follow local established ordering procedures in placing requests for non-NFES supplies with either the Buying Team or local procurement unit.

  • Block 5. DESCRIPTIVE LOCATION/RESPONSE AREA

    • Contains the Billing Address (Street address, NOT a P.O. Box), regardless of delivery mode, including “Will P/U” orders.

      • If writing the billing address here is not an option, ensure that it is captured in the body of the order (Block 12).

      • For items requested on Continuation Sheets, either include a copy of the Resource Order header form or write the billing address in Block 12 for each faxed order.

  • Block 12. NEEDED DATE/TIME

    • Realistic timeframes.

  • Block 12. DELIVER TO

    • If the Ship To (delivery) address is different than the Block 5 billing address on the Resource Order header form, then it needs to be noted in Block 12. If they are the same, then writing Block 5 as the delivery point will suffice.

    • For requests placed on Continuation Sheets, a Block 5 delivery point requires that a copy of the Resource Order header form be included with each faxed order. This may be the most efficient alternative when both Bill To and Ship To addresses are the same.


Supply resource order17 l.jpg
Supply Resource Order

  • Block 12. DELIVER TO (continued)

    • When the Ship To address is different than the Bill To address, the Ship To address needs to be noted in Block 12 for each faxed order.

    • If there is not a physical address associated with the delivery point (i.e. The Fire, ICP Helibase, etc.), then driving directions and/or a map is required. If the delivery point changes, a map and/or driving directions may be required.


Supply resource order18 l.jpg
Supply Resource Order

  • Block 12. DELIVER TO (continued)

  • Requests sent air freight require instructions to either ‘Hold & Call’ with a noted phone number (i.e. Block 8) or deliver to a specified location. If delivery is to other than a physical address, a map and/or driving instructions may be required.

  • Shipping mode needs to be noted for all requests prior to faxing to the NISC. That NISC will provide the best shipping option based on Needed Date/Time if there is a question.

  • Block 12. DELIVER TO (continued)

    • Uncommon airport identifiers should be defined in Block 12 when the NISC is arranging transportation.


Lessons learned l.jpg
Lessons Learned

  • Blind faxes:

    • No way to ensure order was received.

      • Results in misunderstandings.

      • Incident does not receive supplies when needed.


Lessons learned21 l.jpg
Lessons Learned

  • Blind faxes:

    • Order sits on a fax machine during or after normal business hours resulting in the NISC being unable to meet Date/Time Needed.

      • Hesitation by dispatchers to contact the NISC Duty Officer after hours – If in doubt, call.

      • Large orders can take 3-4 hours to get on the road.

      • NISC is unable to take advantage of early morning freight.


Lessons learned22 l.jpg
Lessons Learned

  • ROSS Supply Orders

    • Supply resource orders generated in ROSS are difficult to read when faxed.

      • Until ICBS is able to interface with ROSS (estimating 2007 at the earliest), please continue to utilize the old style Supply Resource Order form when ordering from the NISC.


Lessons learned23 l.jpg
Lessons Learned

  • Operational Agreements between bordering geographical area NISCs.

    • Allow for increased efficiencies in supply mobilization.


Lessons learned24 l.jpg
Lessons Learned

  • Operational Agreements between bordering geographical area NISCs.

    • All key players need to be contacted when the plan is activated.

      • Initial Resource Orders can appear unannounced and sit on the receiving out of area cache’s fax until discovered.

      • Timely notification of supply plan beginning at the supporting local dispatch center through establish channels (e.g., supporting GACC  within area NISC and GACC in which the requested supporting NISC resides  requested supporting NISC).

JOB AID

For ordering from National Interagency Support Cache

General Ordering Information

1. National Incident Radio Support Cache (NIRSC) radio kits and systems must be ordered through the geographic area coordination centers on a ROSS Equipment Order. All other NFES items are ordered on a Supply Resource Order form.

2. Mobile Cache Support Vans (NFES 2069), 500 Person Medical Kits (NFES 1835), Fire Remote Automatic Weather Stations (FRAWS-NFES 5869), and Project Remote Automatic Weather Stations (PRAWS-NFES 5870) must all be ordered through the geographic area coordination centers. Atmospheric Theodolite Meteorological Units (ATMU-NFES 1836) must be ordered through the geographic area coordination centers at National Preparedness Levels 4 & 5.

3. Dispatch Centers may order direct to a NISC for NFES items not available from the local cache (excluding those listed in 1 & 2 above). Type 1 & 2 Teams may also order direct to the Servicing Cache for NFES items (excluding those listed in 1 & 2 above) with concurrence from the hosting agency. In either case, prior to ordering please call the 24-hr. phone number to alert the Servicing Cache of the pending order, followed by faxing the order. Always confirm fax receipt and legibility.

4. Resource orders sent to the Servicing Cache with multiple request numbers (on the same page) requiring different shipping methods or destinations, must be faxed on separate pages. Each resource order page faxed to Servicing Cache should only show the request numbers to be shipped together to one destination. Line through (black out) request numbers not being shipped in the same manner or to the same destination.

5. Orders for NFES items not available or stocked at the Servicing Cache will be forwarded to the nearest National Cache able to fill. However, the Incident must confirm that it requires the items and the quantity specified. The Servicing Cache may recommend a suitable substitute or local purchase. Ordering efficiency will be improved if the incident initially checks stocking locations in the current NFES Catalog for each item requested.

6. Follow local established ordering procedures in placing requests for non-NFES items with either the Buying Team or local procurement unit.

(Realistic

timeframes)

If the Ship To (delivery) address is different than the Blk 5 billing address on the

Resource Order header form, then it needs to be noted in Blk 12. If they are the

same, then writing ‘Blk 5’ as the delivery point will suffice. However, for requests

placed on Continuation Sheets, a ‘Blk 5’ delivery point requires that a copy of

the Resource Order header form be included with each faxed order. This may be

the most efficient alternative when both Bill To and Ship To addresses are the

same. When the Ship To address is different than the Bill To address, the Ship To

address needs to be noted in Blk 12 for each faxed order. If there is not a physical

address associated with the delivery point (i.e., The Fire, ICP, Helibase, etc.), then

driving directions and/or a map is required. If the delivery point changes, a map

and/or driving directions may be required.

Requests sent air freight require instructions to either ’Hold & Call’ what phone #

(i.e., Blk 8) or deliver to a specified location. If delivery is to other than a physical

address, a map and/or driving directions may be required.

The Servicing Cache will provide best shipping option based on Needed Date &

Time if there is a question (please ask). Indicate mode of shipping for all requests

prior to faxing.

Please define in Blk 12 or clarify with follow-up phone call uncommon airport

identifiers where the Servicing Cache is arranging transportation.
