From the information that you have available regarding the event, select the impact rating and timescale for each of the five questions.
Based on your responses, the level of the incident and the suggested actions will be displayed in green, orange or red below the five questions.
Once complete, scroll to the end of the page and click Save.

As the situation changes you can redo the assessment at any time, this may indicate that the situation is escalating or deescalating. Your previous incident assessment(s) are saved in the event report.
