2. Rationale

There are four expectations from this exercise:
  1. transmit several ICS forms
  2. interface with the assigned NTS net
  3. communicate directly with the SEOC
  4. exploit the new MI CIMS

2.1. ICS Forms

The ICS-205 and the ICS-205a are forms detailing the communications strategy for an incident. While most ICS forms we encounter are likely to be prepared by served agencies, these are forms with which we should be familiar. In addition, the ICS-217 is a form which can provide input for the ICS-205. As such, Emergency Coordinators and Net Managers should be familiar with this form as well.
