The Elements of Essential Information (EEI) are divided into three categories: Disaster Area, Assessment and Response and Recovery.  See the sample Information Collection Plan below.  The EEI are used to generate the Information Collection Plan. (Use   MS Word to construct an Information Collection Plan Table.)  Internet resources can be found below

Information Collection Plan

 

Analyzing Information and Developing Intelligence:  To achieve optimum effectiveness the analyst must be extremely familiar with the disaster situation, response operations, and the Information Collection Plan.  Information should be compared against other sources to validate accuracy and to produce consistency in information.  Analysis sometimes requires inference when information does not yield clear-cut intelligence. Inference does not validate, however, it is a reasonable assumption based on analysis.   Inference will require additional information collection (usually from multiple sources).  Authentication of information is positive verification.  It is this verification that turn information into intelligence or information that can be reliably acted upon or used in decision making.

Daily Intelligence Summary (DISUM): The DISUM is intended to provide the Federal Coordninating Officer (FCO) and the Senior ERT Leadership a quick "snapshot" of the current situation.  This product is extremely time-sensitive due to the "volatility" of the information.  The situational aspect of the DISUM tends to become historical and statistical over the passage of time.  The DISUM is most effective early in an operational period when decisions are being made in a situational environment.

Daily Intelligence Summary

 

Disaster ID: 

Example: FEMA-XXXX-DR-XX

 

Date/Time Prepared:

Example: 0630 EST, May 5, 2001

 

Current Situation:

Very brief, 2 or 3-line characterization of current situation.

 

Previous Operational Objectives:

List objectives from last OPeriod Plan.  Indicate whether objectives were achieved or remain open. 

 

Summary Of Impacts:

 

   Shelter/Housing: 

Indicate number of shelters open and population.  Also, identify extent of residential damage.

 

   Critical Facilities:

Indicate number of critical facilities (schools, hospitals, nuclear power plants, etc.) affected, and affect on population.  Provide restoration timelines..

 

   Infrastructure: 

Indicate number of power, water, and communications systems affected and affect on population.  Provide restoration timelines..

 

   Political/Historical Issues:

Identify any specific concerns of elected officials.  Also, identify any historically relevant information that could affect response operations.

 

   Economic Issues:

Identify economically impacted areas and long-range implications.

 

   Weather:

Identify any impact information that could clarify the overall intelligence picture.

 

Critical Issues:

 

   For Current OPeriod:

Identify any issues/concerns that could or will impact operations or activities during the current OPeriod.

 

   Forecast:

Identify any issues/concerns that could or will impact operations or activities in future OPeriods.
