CRISiSLab Webinar: Situation Awareness in Emergency Management


On June 13, former Chief Scientist for the U.S. Air Force, Dr. Mica Endsley, delivered an outstanding presentation in our CRISiSLab Webinar, entitled "Situation Awareness in Emergency Management." Over 50 individuals from various sectors in the disaster management domain attended online, including many practitioners from New Zealand's National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA).

Dr. Endsley discussed the challenges in disaster response and the critical need for situation awareness. The talk was well-received and inspired many attendees. We received positive feedback, highlighting that contemporary issues were addressed accurately and indicating that there will be more discussions and decisions based on the ongoing knowledge of situation awareness.

Here are some snapshots from Dr Mica Endsley's slides and please check the webinar recording below. (Due to some technical issue, the video started a few minutes late. A presentation is attached.)
