Benefits of Pre-Incident Planning
By Dan Curran on April 01, 2016
There's always a blind spot that clouds our view during an incident mitigation. It's the unknown. As firefighters, we know every emergency is loaded with variables that will impact our decision-making. Fortunately, pre-incident planning provides information that narrows the blind spot, helping fire departments make huge strides in safety and performance.
