incidents is a dynamic one. It requires the
responder to learn the correct approach towards
incident stabilization and thus mitigation. As one
works through the eight step process you will find
that the incident you are managing is an incident
which takes necessary organization and process
structure. It was this process that created the
tactical worksheet for managing the incident. It is
a combination quick reference to the FOG while at
the same time an incident management tool.
This worksheet uses core principles broken down
into strategic and tactical planning, each step in
the process is identified as a check off box or
fill in square. The worksheet is to organize your
thoughts of approach both in the classroom when
discussing strategic and tactical options but also

reminds the incident manager of what was learned in
the controlled classroom environment. Color coded
to make sense of initial priorities, follows the
principles set forth in the textbook.
The worksheet is also designed to be used as
evaluative tool and incident file maintenance.
After action report analysis is found on the front
of the worksheet as a check off list, ensuring
units and groups have completed the necessary
paperwork, quickly addressing a quality assurance
component to your hazardous materials response.
