  • Monday, October 17th: Situational Matters Tour Stop, featuring D. Richard B. Gasaway, Retired Fire Chief

 Situational awareness is one of the leading contributing factors for near miss and line-of-duty deaths among first responders operating at emergency scenes. Communications professionals play a critical – yet often underutilized and more often underappreciated – role in helping responders develop and maintain the very situational awareness that can save their lives.

This program provides communications professionals with a thorough understanding of situational awareness - what it is, how challenging it can be to develop and how easy it can be lost.
