or base cluster will report its capabilities in the ADC plan through the LE to the RAOC/RTOC.
The LE will assist in the assessment and in host nation coordination.
o Coordinate with civil affairs teams. Conduct psychological operations to maintain or gain civilian
During and After an Incident Occurs
ADC planning must also consider actions that will take place during and after an incident. Each action
is discussed below:
o Conduct an immediate assessment of the damage. Ensure the information is reported to the
RAOC/RTOC. Concurrent actions must be begun to isolate the danger areas and to prevent
extension or continuation of the damage. Actions to be taken might include fighting fires,
stopping gas leaks, and reducing flooding.
existing fires with stored water or identified water sources. If the fire is too extensive, it can be
limited by fire breaks. Use engineer equipment and explosives.
o Administer first aid and evacuate casualties. Ambulances and aid personnel are preferred but
speed is critical. Use local transportation and "buddy first aid" to provide the quickest means for
evacuation. Military police can direct vehicles or ambulances to the nearest medical facility.
o Coordinate with the MP to provide circulation control. This ensures firefighting equipment gains
access to the area. Ambulances and evacuation vehicles can clear the area. The MP will notify
the RAOC/RTOC of blockage on lines of communications (LOCs). They will divert traffic as
needed to ensure forward support is maintained. Ensure the evacuation routes do not become
cluttered. When possible, host nations (HN) assets will be tasked to provide crowd control
during ADC operations. Host nation support (HNS) may not be available. Military police will
perform this task.
The RAOC/RTOC, in coordination with security plans and operations (SPO), security operations
training, and intelligence (SOTI) will identify emergency food, clothing, water, and fuel.
Quick action must be taken by the technical command in route control and in identifying emergency
supplies. This is critical to recovery in an ADC operation.
The removal and disposal of unexploded ordnance is done by the explosives ordnance disposal control
center (EODCC). The ADC plans section of the RAOC/RTOC or the RAOC/RTOC ordnance officer will
coordinate and execute control measures to dispatch teams from this center. The task of removing and
neutralizing the unexploded ordnance (UXO) may interfere with the capability of a unit to accomplish its
primary missions. EOD units will provide support. An EOD team will normally locate itself with the
RAOC/RTOC. They will assist in quick coordination of this task.
