Situational Awareness

Efficient situational awareness requires obtaining the right information at the right place and time before optimizing it. The dynamic nature of situational awareness pertains knowing and understanding what is happening, predicting how it will change with time, unifying results with the dynamics of the environment in order to achieve desired results, yet the ever-changing circumstances mean a constantly evolving situation or event. Having the ability to understand the severity of those circumstances in advance of or during an emergency can mean the difference between life and death. The ability to predict or model and visualize how the circumstances of a pending or evolving emergency may change over specific times allows emergency managers to allocate resources to priority areas before further damage or loss of life occurs.
