The problem is the lack of direction in the aftermath of a tornado within the North Kansas City Fire Department (NKCFD). The purpose of this research was to identify challenges and objectives in the first operational period following a tornado touchdown. This action research utilized literature review, interviews, and questionnaires to identify potential challenges for responders following a tornado; to learn what guidelines other departments have developed to assist suppression personnel; and to develop a job aid for members of the NKCFD.
