204 CHAPTER 11: SUPERVISORâS FOLDER DESCRIPTION, MATERIALS LIST AND CONSTRUCTION INSTRUCTIONS
205 Supplies: Folder Construction The Supervisorâs Folder. Note the top flap of cardboard that serves as both the closure and the hanging point. Note the placement of the forms across the panel, with the side flaps folding the envelopes as the folder is closed. On the right is the folded version with the blister pack of supplies in place. Boxes â 6 panel â holds 6 different forms = medium size U-Haul boxes â 18â length x 18â width x 16â height, $1.35/box, yields 2 folders 8 panel â holds 8 different forms = 24â length x 18â width x 18â height- $3/ box, yields 2 folders Zip lock top packing envelopes â clear reclosable packing list enclosed envelope, plain face, back load (self-adhesive), 2.0 mil thick, 9â x 12â. Need 6 or 8 per panel, plus one for outside blister pack (see below). Available in 500 per case quantity, about $.18 each ICS forms, available online for download at http://www.training.fema.gov/emiweb/is/icsresource/icsforms.htm, should be printed on one side only except for the ICS-214 and instructions on how to fill out forms
207 Supplies: Blister Pack ICS Field Operations Guide â FEMA downloadable for printing (about $30 each) or mobile devices http://www.usfa.fema.gov/downloads/pdf/publications/field_operations_guide. pdf ICS FOG may be purchased from FIRESCOPE for $5 each http://www.firescope.org/fog- order-info.htm 5â x 8â white pads, 50 sheets per pad 3 ballpoint pens 1 set of Quick Start Cards created using instructions above Equipment Box cutter
207 Directions for Folder 1. Identify the ICS forms needed by your agencyâs field crew: recommended 201, 208, 214, and 2. Determine the number of panels required for these forms when printed one- sided, except for 214. 3. Purchase appropriate sized boxes to accommodate 6 or 8 forms. 4. Print 2 of each form per folder to be made, plus one set of instructions for each form 5. Place 2 copies of each form and one set of instructions in each packing envelope 6. Locate the seam where the cardboard overlaps on the box, use a box cutter to cut that seam. And the seam on the opposite edge of the box. You now have 2 equal cardboard panels. 7. Take one panel, turn sideways so that the flaps are on the right and left sides, with the advertising or writing on the box facing up. 8. Lay out the forms on the marked (advertising) side of the box so that they coincide with the seam in the middle being the folding point, with half of the envelopes above the fold and half below. 9. Adhere the form envelopes to the box by removing the paper covering the self- adhesive surface. 10. Use box cutter to trim bottom and sides to match packing envelopes. 11. On top cut the excess flap material from each side, leaving the center panel top intact. 12. Fold in flaps on the bottom and top portions of the cardboard; fold bottom half upward onto the top half; fold the remaining center portion to overlap the bottom half. 13. Use packing tape on edges of top flap to seal.
208 Directions for Blister Pack Take one packing envelope, with clear side facing up, open zip lock and insert 2 pads, 3 pens, the ICS FOG 420 . Put the Quick Start Cards on top with the Incident Commander card facing out. Reseal the zip lock top of the envelope. Turn over so adhesive side is facing up, peel off backing, fold side edges on envelope Â½â in so adhesive sides stick to themselves. Fold in bottom Â½â so adhesive edge sticks to itself.
209 Grasp top corners of bag (edge with zip lock), position bag bottom first on the back of the cardboard folder, then lay down, and press FIRMLY into the cardboard. Press around edges to ensure full adhesion to cardboard.
210 Lessons learned Cardboard Source this though your local U-haul, Home Depot, Walmart, Staples, Office Depot, local moving company or DOT back-dock/recycling program. Understanding the size and flap locations is critical. When you use the box for this project its orientation is going to change from âHeightâ to âLength.â The flaps will go from top and bottom to right and left side. The cuts for the flaps and related fold seam will become the divider for the top and bottom. When selecting a box to use as the source material, all three dimensions are important (LxWxH). Width will dictate the length of the flaps divided by two. For example, an 18â wide moving box will have 9â wide flaps. If the box is 18â high as well, then four packing list envelops, which are 12â tall and 9â wide, will fit side by side (two in the middle with one on each flap). It is recommended that while field researching, take the number of packing list envelopes you intend to use. Lay them out on the potential cardboard as you intend to use it. Going beyond 8 panels is possible, but isnât practical due to folds and size. It is probably better to make a supplementary kit for the additional forms.
