1. The teams present were the fire and rescue service, police and the paramedics.
2. The incident was a large one and it took up to four days to clear up so the public service teams would have to work in shifts because it is impossible to work four days with out a break.
3. Specialist teams were needed to keep the fire under controls and also cause minimum damage to the surroundings. Such as the fire brigade which would stop the fire from spreading to the other oil containers. They also needed the paramedics because many people were injured in the incident.
4. The consequences of the incident would have been critical, the blaze would have gone out of control and may have become much bigger because it could have caught on to the other oil container. Then it would be much harder to keep the blaze under control.
5. The public servants main objective was to keep the blaze under control, stop the blaze from spreading and to also warn and keep the public safe from the fumes coming off the flame.
6. These objectives were met due to the team working together by co-operation and team work.
7. Camaraderie was needed in this incident so the public service teams would work together and communicate with others and carry out instructions given to them.
8. The leaders involved in this incident were, Roy Wilsher, Whiteley, and Dr Jane Halpin. These leaders would be identified by the uniforms they were wearing. Each leader had to inform his team about what things they would need to do to contribute to achieve a positive outcome or at least not let anyone of the public or the teams get injured.
Private Schools The first position of chapter three is supportive of private schools. This position feels that private schools prevent the public schools from having a total monopoly over education by offering the community an alternative choice. This choice also produces competition with public schools for student enrollment. This position views public schools as something a student must accept ...
9. It was important that the leaders were communicating with other leaders in this incident; they also had to ensure that their public service team was working quickly and efficiently. This helped because the leaders were all aware of which teams and who was doing what from the teams this would prevent confusion between the public service teams.
10. If the leaders didn’t do their job effectively all the public service teams would be confused and there would be no order in extinguishing the flame. They would be ordering a team to do something when they might be another team all ready on the job then they would be wasting the skills of public service teams which could be used in other areas of the incident.
11. The teams demonstrated self-discipline and group discipline by doing what they are told quickly and effectively, they would also work together as a group by co-operating with each other.
12. The team would feel let down and would not be able to work as effectively. They would feel as though they were not a team. Because in a team they must all have the same objectives and all must have self-discipline.
13. The incident would have been a much bigger and worse incident; the incident would have taken longer than four days to extinguish the flame. They would not be focused on the job they would be easily distracted and would not get the best of their ability on the job.
14. The fire chief consulted the oil industry experts about using millions of liters of foam to extinguish the flame.
15. They had to deal with the flame, where they would get millions of liters of foam from and to keep the other oil tanks from exploding.
16. Each individual did as they were told by their team leader and with each person doing as their told this is what eventually got the blaze under control then extinguished.
