ICS Form 201 is not suitable for use as an initial Incident Action Plan (IAP). True or False?

False. The ICS Form 201, Incident Briefing, can occasionally serve as the initial Incident Action Plan (IAP) until a Planning Section has been established and generates, at the direction of the Incident Commander, a more detailed Incident Action Plan.

ICS Form 201 is designed to provide an Incident Command/Unified Command with status information that can be used for briefing incoming resources, an incoming Incident Commander or team, or an immediate supervisor. The form includes basic information such as the incident situation, incident objectives, summary of current actions, and the status of resources assigned or ordered for the incident or event. This form helps bridge the gap between the initial response and the establishment of a full Incident Command System structure, including the development of a comprehensive Incident Action Plan.
