WHAT IS THIS FORM:  ICS 213E is a standard Incident Command System message form adapted (as prescribed in the NIMS ICS Forms Book, FEMA 502-2, September 2010) for use by REACT International Teams in reporting a quick look at their situation in major emergencies and disasters and in reporting daily accountability reports.

WHEN:  Report when a disaster or major emergency impacts your Team, and every evening by 2100 local time.

WHO USES IT:  Team members responsible for managing a Team's response and recovery actions in a disaster.

WHERE DOES THE INFORMATION GO:  REACT Warning Team 6247 consolidates reports from Teams and reports the information as a Situation Report to REACT International headquarters and to the Regional Directors.

WHY:  Disasters are getting bigger and more frequent.  As a result your team may need help if your community is hit.  These reports help REACT officers assess disaster impacts and ensure our members are accounted for.

HOW DO I COMPLETE THE FORM: There are four types of entries on this template:

One line text boxes - type the information requested in the box.  Some boxes are mandatory and have to have an entry in them.  Some boxes require a specific type of information, for example, the phone number and e-mail boxes.

Round radio buttons - click on the one button that best represents your Team's status.

Square check boxes - check each box that is applicable.

Large text box - for information that REACT needs to know but that does not logically fit the subject of one of the one line boxes.

When your information is entered, start the Captcha process.  This is an important defense against bots entering bogus data.

When you get a green check mark from Captcha, submit your report.
