Operations management; Emergency response management; Social network analysis; Statistical modelling; Table-top simulation

Summary of Recent Relevant Research:

A large-scale emergency response relies on a single decision-maker, the incident commander to spontaneously allocate resources that change continuously in both availability and status responding to dynamic incidents. The figure below represents a social network of directed radio communications during a recent table-top simulation. Line weight represents volume of communication.
