  • Complex and rapidly unfolding emergencies and crises create challenging environments for emergency responders of all types to save lives, support critical functions, and restore essential services. These situations, which are often clouded with uncertainty, particularly in the early phases due to unsubstantiated information, require a fast-acting chain of critical decision making.

    Complex and rapidly unfolding emergencies and crises create challenging environments for emergency responders of all types to save lives, support critical functions, and restore essential services. Command center operators and front line personnel must coordinate with the government, private sector, and non-governmental organizations to understand what is occurring, diagnose an emerging situation, and respond appropriately. These situations, which are often clouded with uncertainty, particularly in the early phases due to unsubstantiated information, require a fast-acting chain of critical decision making.
