Issues with situation awareness have been implicated in numerous firefighter near-miss and line-of-duty death reports. As the person responsible for sizing up the fire situation and making decisions that impact firefighter safety, the commander must be able to effectively manage the barriers that can impact his or her situation awareness. In this book, I share the findings of my extensive research of fireground command decision making and what I discovered about the barriers that impact a fireground commander's situation awareness. I discuss 116 potential barriers to a fireground commander's situation awareness and I provide you with recommendations for reducing the impact of your most challenging situation awareness barriers. I also present you with 10 best practices that you should use to ensure you develop and maintain strong situation awareness and make quality decisions on the fireground.
