The Operational Period Briefing:

  • Is conducted at the beginning of each operational period.
  • Presents the Incident Action Plan for the upcoming period to supervisory personnel within the Operations Section.
  • Should be concise.

In addition to the Operations Section Chief, the other members of the Command and General Staff as well as specific support elements (i.e., Communications Unit, Medical Unit) can provide important information needed for safe and effective performance during the operational period.
