My name is Kate Kapalo and I am a Ph.D. candidate in the Modeling & Simulation graduate program at the University of Central Florida. As part of my doctoral dissertation research, I am conducting a research study.
This study involves viewing a pre-incident plan and then determining potential courses of action. There's an online simulated task, where you are looking at the plans for a building that you will pretend is located in your first-due response area. During the study, you will be asked questions about the building and certain features. You will also be asked to answer some questions about the demographics of your fire department and some questions about your experience with the simulation
While there is no direct benefit to you for your participation in this study, your response is important. I will be writing several papers and technical reports and I am happy to share findings with any interested parties. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to receive copies of these documents once they are available.
Please share this link with any interested colleagues. Do not hesitate to reach out to me directly if you have any questions or feedback. I sincerely appreciate your time.
Hello All, I am still short of my participant goal, so if you would be willing to take the survey or share with your department, I would really appreciate it!
Please reach out to me at email@example.com if you have any questions.
