The operational command of major incidents introduces a range of additional considerations for leaders; such as acute political pressures, severe time constraints and risks to life. This environment arguably requires leaders from all relevant organisations to develop decision-making skills that incorporate risk assessments on limited information and the ability to communicate and later justify their rationale.
