StaffingIn this episode, I share how issues related to staffing can impact situational awareness.


Length: 34 minutes

In my efforts to research and share what causes issues with situational awareness I have uncovered over 100… what I call… Barriers. These barriers impact a person’s ability to develop and maintain situational awareness.

In this episode I am going to explore the challenges of staffing as a barrier to situational awareness by sharing excerpts of interviews I conducted with expert-level fireground commanders during my doctoral research.

If you are interested in reading the complete research study, the book (Fireground Command Decision Making: Understanding the barriers challenging command situation awareness) is available through the SAMatters.com store.
