It is a vital part of our process to identify and learn lessons from national and local major incidents. This is also extended to the exercises that we run throughout the year.
Post each major incident we facilitate a debrief and record what we could have done better and where things went well. This then results in a set of recommendations that the we track and then build into a processes to improve our working, hopefully learning the lessons for next time.
The Debrief Focus Group is made up of partners and ensures that we keep on top of the recommendations and upholds the standards of our LRF multi-agency debriefing by evaluating the debrief reports as a whole. Improvements to the process are made by this group.
Excerpts from some debriefs over the last few years can be found below.
