Edit or Delete IRG Objectives

Objectives are tasks or duties associated with incident response guides (IRGs) to direct participants’ actions and help resolve the situation. In addition to naming and describing objectives, it is necessary to assign objectives to an ICS Chart position or the incident as a whole.

Note:

  • eICS allows you to create multiple objectives with the same name; however, you should check your local policies to find out if it is required to identify objectives with unique names.
  • In Planning, objectives assigned to the incident, rather than an ICS Chart position, appear on the General (in the Incident Objectives section) and Objectives drawers of the IRG.

  1. On the Home page, point to Planning and select Plan Summary.

  2. In the Summary for list, select the domain or facility.

  3. On the left, select the appropriate IRG (for example, Active Shooter or Chemical Incident).
