4. Acronyms or jargon
When communicating, ICS requires that responders DO NOT use 'Acronyms or jargon'.
Other guidelines for establishing common terminology include:
- Response personnel should use common names for all personnel and equipment re-sources, as well as for all facilities in and around the incident area
- Radio transmissions should use clear text (that is, plain English, without “ten” codes or agency-specific codes).
