Anchorman, Inc. Life Safety Brief – Crisis by its very nature are plagued with confusion and chaos!

Initiative Based Evolving Strategies & Tactics

Sid Heal states in his book “Field Command”: Crisis by its very nature are plagued with confusion and chaos…  Events can unfold quickly and typically require an immediate response.  Consequently, normal and routine procedures are interrupted.

High-stress situations are typically complex and unpredictable.  Their cause or immediate nature may be unclear.  The events are dynamic and variable.  Conditions evolve or complicate, often negating initial expectations and plans, as captured in the variously worded famous military dictum, “No plan survives contact with the enemy.”

An effective response may be outside the standard operating procedures and requires adaptations or creative reactions.
