What considerations will firefighters need to make when deciding whether to evacuate residents or to protect them in place at hospital ?

Title Page
Your title page should contain a running head, title, author name, and school affiliation. The purpose of your title page is to let the reader quickly know what your paper is about and who it was written by.
Abstract
An abstract is a brief summary of your paper that immediately follows your title page. According to this format your abstract should be no more than 150 to 250 words although this can vary depending upon the specific publication or instructor requirements.
The Main Body
For something like an essay, the main body of your paper will include the actual essay itself. Your body can be broken down to several sections separated by spaces.
References
The reference section of your paper will include a list of all of the sources that you used in your paper. If you cited any piece of information anywhere in your paper, it needs to be properly referenced in this section. One handy rule of thumb to remember is that any source cited in your paper needs to be included in your reference section, and any source listed in your reference section must also be mentioned somewhere in your paper.
Health care and high-risk populations include facilities with occupants who oftentimes are unable to assist themselves. Hospitals, nursing homes, assisted living facilities, penal institutions, and schools include elderly, young, sick, and incarcerated populations. These groups will require special attention when a fire or emergency occurs. Since their occupants are so diverse, specific preplans will be needed to ensure that all facets are considered and addressed when you are called to an incident. Addition- ally, responding to a mass casualty incident will tax every response agency. There will be a need for timely and appropriate care to minimize injuries and deliver the injured to medical facilities for continued professional treatment. Active shooter incidents, though initially a police activity, will usually involve firefighters in the operation.

Follow the steps below to complete this assignment.
Step 1 – For the Incident Radio Communications Plan (ICS 205) you need to fill out all of Section 1, all of Section 2, all of Section 3, for Section 4 only the Channel Number and Function, and all of Section 6. For Sections 1, 2, 3 and 6 use the below information:

Example Charles Xavier would probably have been placed in a Command or General Staff position on the 203. For the purposes of this example let’s say he is assigned Liaison Officer. For the 205 Form I would designate that Channel 3 be for Command Staff and on my 205a I would put Liaison Officer for Incident Assignment Position, Charles Xaiver for Name and R#3 –C#3 (Meaning Radio # 3 has been given to him and he should be on Channel # 3).
For Sections 1, 2, and 4 use the below information:
At the top- Section 1. Incident Name: For this section type in Raccoon City Fire #105-F-2017
