HROs encourage, actually seek out, conflicting opinions.  Systems existing in the fire service, such as CRM and ICS, encourage this behavior.  Why is constructive conflict encouraged?  Because they help us discover the human factors that lead to mistakes, accidents, and LODDs.  This show provides an overview of CRM's strengths in relation to an HRO and why they are so important to the future of the fire service.
