RescueDigest Resources: Emergency Scene Management

RescueDigest’s Top Picks of essential resources for critical topics in emergency services.

Emergency Scene Management: It isn’t just a skill for the “white shirts”.

From Officers and Managers to the Grunts on the street, we all have the potential to be First Due / On-Scene, arriving at calls that have the potential to quickly get away from us. While many books, acronyms and mnemonics are available, few focus on the core principles of emergency management in such a way that you can carry them with you to use on each and every call.

How you can use these resources: RescueDigest curates great research and resources during the development of our articles and educational programs. Since our mission is to “Help You Help Others” we present the best of these resources for you to explore, share and use in your own agency.


We dig through the papers, so you don't have to!
