  2. Document that they have an existing personal and family preparedness plan.

     
  3. Describe the chain of command (e.g., Emergency Management Systems, Incident Command System, National Incident Management System), MRC integration and its application given the incident.

     
  4. Describe the local MRC unit’s role in public health and/or emergency response and its application to a given incident.

     
  5. Describe their communication role(s) and processes with response partners, media, general public, and others.

     
  6. Describe an event’s impact on their mental health, responders and others.
