This research stream investigates strategic decision-making during emergency events. It has a specific focus on how coordination occurs at regional and state levels of emergency management (EM), although does not exclude the interactions between these levels and the IMT. The research will apply the following sequence:
To support these objectives, this section of the report is structured in the following way. First we examine the literature relevant to this specific ‘class’ of decisions made at Regional and State levels, noting that more than one type of decision-making process is applied. We then look at different decision models that are used in EM and critique them with respect to the literature. We then explore some of the limitations of these models and identify the opportunities for enhancement. Finally, we propose a strategy for the next stage of the research project. We suggest using a human-centred design process and an assessment of end-user organisation’s maturity to appropriately tailor a tool to the organisation. Embedded within the design process will be the testing protocol to assess validity and reliability of the tool.
