Command decisions

Tissington, Patrick A. (2004). Command decisions. Fire Prevention and Fire Engineers Journal, 64 (243), pp. 42-44.


The importance of effective command and decision-making training for fire service personnel, is discussed. The existing research in fireground decision making led to the formulation of a model of decision making, recognition primed decision making (RPD). The RPD model proposes that in recognizing a situation, the decision maker generates four by-products of recognition, which include expectancies, plausible goals, relevant cues, and typical actions. The RPD model can be used as a basis for training in decision making which can now be carried out in isolation and at very little cost.
