FIOR trainers are trained critical incident leaders, who have experienced the real thing, and who can assist your organisation to select and train the right managers to become positive leaders in the high pressured environment of emergency situations. Their approach based on merging theory with tradecraft and the provision of a toolkit to assist those leaders to effectively handle a critical incident is unique in the market place. An excellent manager does not automatically possess the leadership qualities to succeed in a critical incident. FIOR can provide training which assists Gold, Silver and Bronze players to succeed in their roles. Read More

Structured Debriefing (2 hour session plus Structured Debrief Report)

Generally debriefing is considered to be inconsistent and at times of dubious value often contributing a lack of confidence in the process. Introducing consistency through ‘structure’ and an ethical approach can change attitudes towards debriefing.

FIOR offers a ‘Structured Debriefing’ service delivered on site within days of an incident. Structured Debriefing is a disciplined but flexible technique for learning through reflection by sharing experiences, gathering information, and developing ideas for the future.’ It is best undertaken in small groups of up to but not exceeding 12 and the debrief itself will be completed within an hour.
