Course summary

The MSc Fire and Rescue Service Management focuses on managerial decision-making in risk critical situations within the fire and rescue service, in both an operational and non-operational context.

Strategic managers in the Fire and Rescue Service in risk critical situations face unique challenges in both preparing for and dealing with situations which threaten life and critical infrastructure or reputation.

This postgraduate course brings together insights regarding risk perception and decision-making across domains ranging from the operational context, cognitive psychology, economics, and public policy. It suggests strategies to ensure a mature effective response to various managerial situations.
