The Operational Period Briefing (OPB) is a critical component of the Incident Command System (ICS) and is held at the beginning of each operational period. The purpose of the OPB is to provide supervisory personnel with an overview of the upcoming operational period, including the Incident Action Plan (IAP) for that period. The IAP outlines the specific objectives, strategies, and tactics that will be used to manage the incident during the upcoming operational period. The OPB is important for ensuring that all personnel are aware of the plan and their assigned tasks, and that everyone is working towards the same goals.
