Situation Awareness in Auto Racing Track Incident Response
Incident response at auto racing events requires a different approach to that used in standard emergency response to automobile accidents. Time scales are compressed, and the patterns of incidents are quite different. There may also be spectators in relative proximity to the incident who may be injured by debris and are certain to be a source of distraction during response. Further, the crew members (fire, medical, and vehicle recovery) responding to the incident may have never worked together previously but are now working together under direct observation by race officials and spectators, who introduce greater time pressure and demands on the crews. Insights from previous research in driver behavior and performance in complex domains are extended to track incident response, including consideration of individual and team performance dynamics.
