Crew Resource Management: Principles and Practice will help fire department leaders to: eliminate communication barriers within various teams; improve the lines of communication between fire fighters and their superiors; maximize synergies between teams through cross-training while also improving individual performance; and teach situational awareness and decision making skills to help department members succeed in even the most challenging conditions.
