Failure to interpret information

Hazard Knowledge

The importance of a common approach is highlighted by the need to ensure operational risk information can be shared and understood across emergency services and between fire and rescue services. This is emphasised by increased integration of operational response, through intra and inter-operability arrangements. For further information see JESIP Joint Doctrine.

Information should be presented to ensure that the detail, level and content supports incident commanders, firefighters and emergency responders without overwhelming or overloading them. The information should be clear, concise and readily understood by all. This enables effective decision making when resolving incidents.
