Crew Cohesion

Crew cohesion has been a hot topic within wildland fire suppression for the past several years and rightfully so.  Whether it is a fire crew, a work team, committee or basketball team, to be effective they must work together.  In the case of a fire crew, not only is effectiveness important but so is crew safety.   Investigations have shown a connection to lack of crew cohesion with fireline fatalities.

The ability of fire crew members to effectively work together has an impact on their ability to communicate with each other as well as with other crews.  Crew cohesion affects the quality of decision making, conflict resolution, and trust.

Following are links to crew cohesion training possibilities that will stress the importance of working together as a team and some ways for the crew’s leadership to assess and develop cohesion among their fire fighting crew.
