Information is at the heart of crisis management. Accurate and reliable first-hand accounts of different situations enables professionals to resolve future threats and minimize any damage. One of the main methods of gathering information about hostage situations, terrorist attacks or disaster events is the cognitive interview, which usually involves victims such as escaped hostages and people rescued from disasters.
Informing the Future
A victim or eye-witness to an event provides valuable and accurate information about what happened in the past and what is therefore likely to happen in the future. The knowledge gained from a well-conducted interview provides a vital tool that can be used to help with future events in real-time and save lives.
