In October I was in Chesapeake to deliver two-days of situational awareness training and I caught up with one of my life-long friends, Norfolk Assistant Fire Chief, John DiBacco. John and I served together on our first fire department in Weirton, West Virginia.  During the interview we talked about the process of after-action reviews John uses to gather and share lessons with his crews.
