Inspection Course

Pre - Incident Planning

Pre-Incident Planning:

May be performed by: inspectors, first due response companies, officers, plant fire brigades, corporate safety divisions, insurers, anyone with vested interest.

Most applicable for target hazards.

A good pre-incident plan should yield a good estimate of the resources that will be required for incident management.

The plan will ultimately assist the Incident Commander in determining how aggressive to be considering risk vs. benefit.

Pre-incident planning is a process, not simply a document.

Preplanning is never complete. The plan should be considered a "living document" that must be continually refined to meet changes and conditions.

Preplanning is useless unless the plans are available to on-scene companies.

Consider on-board computers, microfiche, lock box, 3 X 5 cards, etc.
