Thesis Series: There Are No Monsters in the Closet

 

NPS-CHDS master’s graduate David Sabat (MA1801/1802), Captain for Howard County, MD, Fire and Rescue, discusses his thesis with Octavio Saenz in this Master’s Thesis Series video. Sabat’s thesis is titled “There Are No Monsters in the Closet: Why Fire Departments Are Not Implementing Best Concepts for Active Assailant Incidents” and delves into the question of why fire departments in the United States are reluctant to implement best concepts to more rapidly access victims during active assailant incidents. The recommendations provided in his thesis can help all fire departments adapt best concepts for active assailant incidents to encourage implementation.
