Chief Null has it right. Those on scene almost always will know more than those up the command chain. But I might add three things for further consideration.
• When those in a command center develop an attitude that they know how things should be done on scene, best to back off. When Sailors are in trouble at sea, there are always many wise men ashore. Lose the all-knowing complex while folks in a seaway are dealing with weather, danger, and poor communications—while you are looking for a fresh cup of coffee.
