Update a feature class based on another table

Hello All:
I am a newbie in python and working on a script that is supposed to update a feature class (fc) based on another table (Table1) by comparing/matching the records in the feature class (fc) to the table (Table1) based on a field "INCIDENT_ID." If there is a match it then updates the feature class(fc) based on the match from the table(not sure if that makes sense). Else: the unmatched records from the table (Table1) are new, so it takes these new records, performs a geocode which should also add XY fields and a spatialjoin of the geocode result with 3 polygon feature classes (ccd, ced, scd) and updates the necessary fields(ccd_name, ccd_desc, ced_name, ced_desc , scd_name and scd_desc) in the feature class(fc) based on the spatialjoin. So far, I have not been able to get the script to run and produce the desired output. And will gladly appreciate any help I can get to stir me in the right direction. I have also attached the script and the sample data I am working with.
