Characteristics of the Management of Protection Organisations and the Process of Command and Control Activities Performed on Incidents Sites
The effectiveness of protection activities heavily depends on managerial work and the leadership skills of a commander. This is of great importance, because managerial failure here also can mean the loss of human lives and property. In the article, the authors examine what requirements and expectations can be formulated for the management of protection organisations. Based on the study of the management practices of specific disasters, the study determines the elements and process of the command activities performed in an incident site. The authors analyse what leadership skills and competencies a leader in a given organisation must possess to succeed in protection work.
