Situational Awareness for Emergency Response

Situational awareness is more complex than simply noticing what is happening around you. An emergency responder must capture clues and cues in the emergency environment, make sense of the information, and predict what will happen next. In Situational Awareness for Emergency Response, Richard Gasaway establishes the foundation of decision making and the role of situational awareness in high-risk public safety environments. He explains his original research on command decisions and the barriers that challenge a commander's situational awareness, and offers lessons learned and best practices that can assist responders in preventing or overcoming the situational awareness barriers. Situational Awareness for Emergency Response is an ideal resource for incident commanders, line personnel who make high-stress decisions, and students learning to develop and maintain situational awareness. Features and benefits: Realise how decisions are made in high-stress, high-consequence, and time-compressed situations Understand situational awareness and its role in making good and bad decisions Identify barriers that challenge a commander's situational awareness Improve your decision making with the lessons learned and recommended best practices Use the 25-point checklist as an incident evaluation tool to improve safety
