You might think that by now the importance of completing a 360-degree size-up would be second nature for firefighters. But it’s not. In fact, failing to complete a proper size-up remains one of the most often cited contributing factors in NIOSH Line-of-Duty death reports. There are lots of reasons why proper size-ups are not completed. Here we will explore 10 of them.

During this Pandemic, I have heard the term situational awareness spoken more times than I can ever remember.  Media pundits, medical experts, emergency managers – they’re all telling us it’s important to maintain situational awareness.  In one respect, this warms my heart because situational awareness has been my passion topic for more than 15 years. 

But in other respects, it causes me to worry because most people have very little understanding about what situational awareness is or how to develop and maintain it.  This program takes the mystery out of the concept and explains it all.
