  • Online survey about pre-incident planning for dissertation research

    Hi All--

    As part of my research in my doctoral program, I am looking for firefighters of all ranks who are willing to complete an online survey. This study involves answering questions about how you and/or your department use pre-incident plans (PIPs).

    You do not have to answer any questions you do not wish to answer. Personally identifiable information will not be collected and the link is anonymous. This survey can be completed on any device (mobile, tablet, desktop) and will take approximately 30 minutes of your time.

    Please navigate to the link for further directions and additional information.

    Please feel free to share with any interested colleagues!

    Thank you, I appreciate your time.

                          So those with active pre incident plan programs are you using off the shelf software if so what program? What do you like or not like about the software? Currently using google maps for aerial photos then dropped into word document. Trying to get to the next level using NFPA 1620 as a outline going forward. PM me if you would like to discuss off line.

                          Kate if you can send your presentation it would be very much appreciated.
