To create a management action point

  1. From the WFDSS Incident List, select the incident you want to create management action points for.
  2. Click View Information. The Edit Incident page appears.
  3. From the left menu, select Mgmt Action Points. The Management Action Point List page appears.
  4. Click Create Management Action Point. The Create Management Action Point page appears.
  5. Accept the displayed MAP number in the text box, or enter one of your own.
  6. Enter an estimated cost for implementing this M.A.P. (You can use the worksheet found in the Related Resources > WFDSS Tools.)
  7. Select a shape to associate with the M.A.P. (See Maps and Shapes for information on creating and uploading shape files.)
  8. Enter a Condition.

    For example, "The fire reaches Black Oak Ridge".

  9. Enter an Action.

    For example, "Close Black Oak road, and evacuate Little Town".

  10. Enter the Resources you need to implement this M.A.P.
  11. Click Save. The M.A.P. is assigned a number and added to the M.A.P. List. The Create Management Action Point page refreshes so that you can create additional M.A.P.s.
  12. If you want to include images of individual or all M.A.P.s in the decision, select one or both Images to Include options atop the page.

Until an M.A.P. is activated, only incident owners and editors can view, edit, or delete it. Once activated, the M.A.P. is no longer editable. Activated M.A.P.s are automatically included in the next decision, unless you actively choose to exclude them.
