Use ICS Forms with Numbered Boxes which assist in voice transmission of the information content
Ozzie N4SCY, ham radio operator

When transmitting the text of ICS Form 213 via ham radio, use a copy of the ICS-213 form that shows Numbered boxes, such as the one at:

http://www.k4eoc.com/files/ics_forms/213.pdf

While modern e-mail systems allow the use of ICS-213 transmission via e-mail via radio,
you sometimes have only voice comunications, and you need to communicate what goes into the
forms boxes. Using a form with numbered boxes allows you to specify the box number you are
about to send, and the contnts of the box. for example:
N4SCY: K4EOC, this is N4SCY at Fire Station 11 with traffic, over.

K4EOC: N4SCY, K4EOC, go ahead with your traffic, over.

N4SCY: I have an ICS-213, Box 1, Huricane Yankee Exercise, Box 2, June 30, Nineteen Seenteen EDT,
Box 3, Red Cross Rockledge, Box 4, Jimmy Edwards, Shelter Manager, box 5, Supplies Required.
Break.

K4EOC: Copied all, Continue.

N4SCY: Box 6, Running low on soup and bread XRAY Currently sheltering 20 adults, 15 children, 
with 8 Volunteers XRAY.

N4SCY: Signed Jimmy Edwards, Shelter Manager

N4SCY: BREAK

N4SCY: Message ends, N4SCY.

K4EOC: Roger, copied all. K4EOC Clear.
If using packet radio without SMTP E-mail software for ICS213 transmission, using
the following format will allow the opertor at the other end to put the message onto an
ICS-213 form for delivery:
