Add Objectives to an Incident

Table of contents

You can add objectives to an incident to document and describe tasks that need to be completed as part of the incident response.


  • Objectives must be assigned to an ICS Chart position or the incident.
  • When the list of objectives is filtered by a position and you add a new objective, it will automatically be assigned to the filtered position.
  • If you assign an objective to the Incident Level, remember that the objective is not connected to any position and will not appear in the list of objectives when it is being filtered by position.
