Communications during a disaster is critical and challenging. The traditional way to send messages was with a 3-part, carbon interleaved form called an ICS 213. This form has a place for a message and a reply plus the To: and From: and Date/Time fields, etc.
Today, with most messages transferred by radio, the reply doesn’t come fast enough to use a single form. The radio operator sends the message and then the recipient will compose a response that will be relayed by radio sometime later. Emergency radio teams have modified the old ICS 213 to suit thi scenario. Here’s our version.
