Template Guided Incident Action Plans (IAP)

DLAN's Incident Action Plan (IAP) simplifies the planning process and speeds up document creation and distribution. DLAN aligns with FEMA's guidelines for IAP preperation, provides time saving templates, and creates a central repository for IAPs. 

The module includes all FEMA Incident Command System (ICS) forms. Healthcare Incident Command System (HICS) and Ontario Incident Management System (IMS) are also available. In additon, BCG can create customized forms for your organization. 

The module guides users through the steps of creating an IAP using simple drop-down lists, value pickers, and data validation. One of the key ways the module streamlines the IAP process is by allowing the use of templates for both IAP cover pages and the IAP itself.  It also allows users to enter information that will be used in multiple areas of the IAP once and have it repopulate to other areas, eliminating duplicate data entry and reducing the chance of errors. 

Many of our clients have further simplified the process by adding an IAP Builder Status Board with a side panel including instructions on how to fill out the necessary forms.
