Instructions When there is a disaster event, it is important to record the details in an activity log. The activity log provides documentation and details of the incident, and serves as a reference for additional after action reports. Using the simulation exercise scenario, complete an ICS 214 Action Log. The FEMA Form is provided as an attachment in the assignment. ICS 214 Activity Log Purpose. The Activity Log (ICS 214) records details of notable activities at any ICS level, including single resources, equipment, Task Forces, etc. These logs provide basic incident activity documentation, and a reference for any after action report. Preparation. An ICS 214 can be initiated and maintained by personnel in various ICS positions as it is needed or appropriate. Personnel should document how relevant incident activities are occurring and progressing, or any notable events or communications. Distribution. Completed ICS 214s are submitted to supervisors, who forward them to the Documentation Unit. All completed original forms must be given to the Documentation Unit, which maintains a file of all ICS 214s. It is recommended that individuals retain a copy for their own records.
