Activate a Plan

Table of contents

During planning, your facility may construct multiple plans. While only one plan can be active at any time, being able to set up additional plans supports a facility's transition from one plan to another.


Important: Exercise caution when activating a plan. Only one plan can be active at time. If you activate a new one, you are automatically deactivating the existing plan. Ensure you have specified all details of a plan (such as files, the ICS chart and chain of command, depth charts, and incident response guides) before implementing (activating) it.
