Abstract

Emergency situations demand fast, effective multi-agency collaboration. Communication is crucial, but often difficult under immense time pressure, in extremely complex and often very dangerous settings. This paper explores the role of embodied conduct and movement in making sense of the changing situation and in coordinating emergency teamwork. It presents ethnographic observations with emergency service professionals during training exercises for major incidents and ethnomethodological analysis.
