In this episode we go back to the basics and explain what situational awareness is, how it is developed and why it is so important to first responder decision making. This isn’t something we’ve done since episode #1.
Length: 39 minutes
In this episode we provide a working definition of situational awareness and take the mystery out of how it is developed and maintained by individuals working in high risk, high consequence environments.
Specifically, we will discuss:
• Pattern Matching
• Tacit Knowledge
And we will address some of the reasons why situational awareness can be so challenging to develop and maintain.
