Event Log Tracking

Table of contents
No headers

Events are actions taken in relation to an incident that are either initiated automatically by the system or manually by a user on the Incident Dashboard. All events appear on the Event Log tab, except for messages or manually added log entries that are specifically marked to not be included in the log.

Certain events also appear in the Recent Events ticker, at the bottom of the Incident Dashboard, and the HICS 201 - Incident Briefing form. The Recent Events ticker shows the 30 most recent events and it is automatically updated each time an event occurs.

This table identifies events that appear in the ticker and HICS 201.
