    5353''Resources (such as '''personnel''', '''equipment''', '''supplies''' and '''facilities''') are needed to support critical incident objectives. The flow of resources must be fluid and adaptable to the requirements of the incident. NIMS defines standardized mechanisms and establishes the resource management process to '''identify requirements''', '''order and acquire''', '''mobilize''', '''track and report''', '''recover and demobilize''', '''reimburse''', and '''inventory''' resources.''

    55 Standardised categorisation
     55Resources are identified by standard:
     56'''Type''' - specifically defines the level of capability a resource has. Type may vary by power, size, or capacity. Therefore, assigning a Type 1 label to a resource implies that it has a greater level of capability than a Type 2 of the same resource. The National Resource Typing definitions are broken into four distinct types. In some cases, a resource may have less than or more than four types. The type assigned to a resource or a component is based on a minimum level of capability described by the identified metric(s) for that resource.

    57 Although different formats may exist, every resource order should contain the essential elements of information (a good mnemonic is SALTT: Size, Amount, Location, Type, Time):
     58'''Category''' - describes the function for which a resource would be most useful (list as of June 2007):
     59 * Transportation
     60 * Communications
     61 * Public works and engineering
     62 * Firefighting

     72 * Public information
     73 * Animals and agricultural issues

     76'''Kind''' (broad classes that characterize like resources):
     77 * teams
     78 * equipment
     79 * supplies
     80 * vehicles
     81 * aircraft
     82
     83
     84Although different formats may exist, every '''Resource Order''' should contain the essential elements of information (a good mnemonic is SALTT: Size, Amount, Location, Type, Time):
    5885 * Incident name
    5986 * Order and/or request number (if known or assigned)
