Abstract [en]

Due to the chaotic nature of accidents and crisis, emergency responses tend to unfold in a highly dynamic fashion. It is therefore of key importance that emergency service staff are continually trained on being mindful of risks and to spot early signs of things that could go wrong during an emergency response. This article suggests a way to adapt existing regimes for foresight training to the needs of emergency response organizations. Foresight training is currently being tried out in healthcare, and similar ideas, i.e. to base training on “what-if” discussions of typical high-risk scenarios, have also been implemented in the mining industry, and in the off-shore oil and gas industry. We follow this trend and suggest a way for foresight training to be integrated into virtual-reality-based emergency response exercises as part of the after action review (when the emergency response exercise is debriefed). The material for foresight training could be based on events that were encountered during the preceding exercise, as well as other typical high-risk situations, and subsequent discussions could, for example, be focused on the factors contributing to an elevated risk level and to what extent a negative development of events could be avoided through insightful actions. Hence, focus is on training to recognize typical risk factors and associate these with appropriate defensive steps.
