DD Form 173/1 is the joint message form for Serious Incident Report (SIR). The form is used for both
criminal and noncriminal incidents. A serious incident is any event that must be reported quickly
because of the nature and gravity of the incident, the publicity generated, or the potential consequences.
The rank or position of involved personnel will not interfere with reporting SIRs.
There are three types of SIRS. The first type is simply called an SIR. This is the original submission of
a serious incident. An Add-on is the second type. This is submitted when more pertinent data is
developed on an SIR. The Add-on may also be used in response to a request for more information from
Headquarters of the DA (HQDA). A Correction is the third type of SIR. It is submitted at any time to
correct an error in a previous report. Detailed
