Abstract

A new approach to understanding how information is taken in and used on the fireground is being developed by staff from the Gloucestershire Fire and Rescue Service and CRACKLE (Centre for Research in Applied Cognition, Knowledge, Learning and Emotion) at the University of Gloucestershire. The research involves observing FRS teams during training exercises to determine how individuals and teams use information about the fireground situation.
