Trip Planning

With nice weather comes the desire to get out of town. Fall road trips offer families time to hit the road together. But, do you plan ahead and practice risk management?
  • Assess the situation: Identify and assess the hazards associated with a particular mission or activity
  • Balance Controls: Consider all available controls (resources) available to ensure success or mitigate identified hazards
  • Communicate: Communicate with leadership or others to discuss problems, intentions & possible alternatives. In individual situations carefully consider personal actions before deciding upon & implementing a final course of action
  • Decide and Debrief: Make the decision to continue, modify or abandon the mission or activity based upon real-time circumstances and conditions. Provide feedback on what worked and what did not work to ensure important lessons learned are passed to others; your experience can help save lives!
