U.S. Fire Administration releases report on operational lessons learned in disaster response

This free report looks at after action reviews from major disasters of the past decade to gain insight into lessons learned. It identifies gaps and needs in first responder training and resources and presents solutions that serve to better prepare local-level fire services for all-hazard events and to interact with federal resources. The disasters studied were weather-related events that required responding firefighters to assume duties for which they were unprepared or for situations they never anticipated. Download Operational Lessons Learned in Disaster Response from the U.S. Fire Administration’s website at www.usfa.fema.gov.
