Front Back
Deployment is the most “________” command function.
“functional”
The _____ is responsible for the initial and ongoing resource deployment required to support the incident operation.
IC
The basic objective of incident deployment is to provide a:
steady, adequate stream of appropriate resources—people, equipment and systems—at the right time, in the right place and performing correct, standard action.
Well-designed, practical resource-management procedures and quick, effective command deployment provide:
the organizational structure and command plan that drive on-line incident resource acquisition and utilization.
Simply, this involves the IC acquiring the right stuff to pick a fight with the incident problem:
and then using that stuff effectively and safely to win that fight.
Base your call for resources on:______________________________
the most rapid, accurate, current  and forecasted event profile you can develop based on the incident’s critical factors and the tactical priorities.
The IC manages the tactical and task levels of the organization: _____________________
in order to achieve the tactical priorities.
A lack of adequate resources presents a huge:___________
safety issue.
The IC’s initial size-up process includes:______________, and then making sure those resources are on the way.
determining the companies/units, equipment, personnel and specialized help required to perform (and complete) the job,
The experienced IC uses a combination of ____________and ___________ (it takes more, not less) when determining the resources required to conduct safe, efficient incident operations.
past experience and pessimism
The IC has to_________ that must take place at the incident scene with the people and equipment that will be doing the work.
match (and manage) the work
Matching these two constants (______________) requires the IC to have a good grasp of the personnel, equipment and apparatus in the area, as well as the systems used to activate and manage those resources.
(tasks and workers)
The IC must consider the participation of other ________ and _________ and incorporate their involvement into everyday operations.
incident players and agencies
The IC must connect the incident’s profile to the profile of the local-deployment process by quickly answering a set of related questions that create a basic response profile for the incident:
  • What resources are on the scene?
  • When will the other responding resources arrive on the scene?
  • How much work can the responders on the initial assignment do and for how long?
  • How much work exists beyond the capability of the initial assignment?
  • How many geographic/functional areas need resources to cover the incident and get ahead of the power curve?
  • What additional resources are required?
  • What are the profiles of the additional required resources (who/what/where/when)?
The IC must automatically, instinctively and quickly develop and compare these two profiles (________________) and then call for the additional resources necessary to effectively engage and overpower the incident problem.
(event vs. response)
The IC requests resources from the:__________.
Dispatch Center
Making resource allocation a function of the ____________ streamlines getting the appropriate type and amount of resources to the scene.
Dispatch Center
The ___ is responsible for keeping track of their assigned resources. They use a tactical worksheet to do this.
IC
_____________________ - this includes the IC’s considering the time it takes to get the right amount of resources (people and stuff) into the work area (the incident site).
Monitor and manage within on-line response times
Once the IC has made the initial ___________-___________and__________, they must continually assess whether enough units are present to control the incident problems.
resource-level evaluation and determination
Making resource-level decisions is one of the IC’s________________
critical, ongoing functions.
When ______ or __________ gums it up, it usually occurs at a critical time when the IC needs more workers. It becomes a gigantic organizational headache that wrecks a lot of people, places and things.
something or someone
Having to wade through a blivet of slow, bureaucratic dispatching confusion clogs up the airways when we need them most and produces a too-little, too-late response that no amount of _________can outperform.
hard work
The IC is the resource allocator for the incident and is responsible for managing the work cycles of all assigned resources on the strategic level. The cycle looks like this:
  1. Dispatched
  2. Responding
  3. Staged
  4. Assigned to incident by the IC
  5. Working or assigned as tactical reserve
  6. Recycling
  7. Rehabbing
  8. Ready for reassignment
  9. Available
It also provides a system that allows the IC to manage :
accountability on the strategic level.
If companies do not stage when they get to the scene,
they will not be assigned according to the IC’s plan.
___________ makes any incident management system fail.
Freelancing
Once assigned to operational positions, units must:
operate within the accountability SOPs.
The foundation of accountability SOPs is that:
crews stay together and always maintain the ability to exit the hazard zone.
A proper rehab sector/division/group allows the IC :
to put assigned resources through the standard work cycle several times.
