Please note: We still have copies with the old cover, but content in the books are exactly the same.

Flawed situational awareness is a leading contributing factor to first responder near-miss and casualty events. Yet, sadly, most first responders know very little about situational awareness – what it is, how to develop it, what erodes it and how to regain it once it has been eroded.

This book – the second in a series – is a collection of articles from the highly acclaimed SAMatters.com blog. Each contribution discusses the challenges first responders face while trying to develop and maintain situational awareness while making decisions in high-risk, high consequence, time compressed, rapidly changing environments, including:

  • Stress
  • Communications
  • Vigilance
  • Tunnel Vision
  • Auditory Exclusion
  • Information Overload
  • Time Distortion
  • Bad Habits
  • Technology
  • Peer Pressure
  • Size-up
  • Noise
  • Mindset
  • Freelancing
  • Accountability
  • And more…
