Incident Action Plan

Incident Action Plan

The Incident Action Plan is the specific plan drawn up when an incident happens that says What must happen, By when, and By whom. It acts as a reference and waypoint for everyone involved to ensure the right things are done on time, and avoids the confusion, chaos and mistakesĀ that resultĀ from panic-based, on-the-fly decisions.

You can download Blackplan’s Incident Action Plan here. It is a good idea to familiarise yourself with it, so you are ready to complete one when an incident occurs.

Note that the IAP does not replace the Emergency Response Plan (which is put together before an incident occurs) – it augments it with incident-specific planning.
