(b) Inform the adverse party that he now has notice of the provisions of the order and that a violation of the order will result in his arrest;

(c) Inform the adverse party of the location of the court that issued the original order and the hours during which the adverse party may obtain a copy of the order; and

(d) Inform the adverse party of the date and time set for a hearing on an application for an extended order, if any.

3. Information concerning the terms and conditions of the order, the date and time of the notice provided to the adverse party and the name and identifying number of the officer who gave the notice must be provided in writing to the applicant and noted in the records of the law enforcement agency and the court.
