The 10 steps to situational awareness is a process which can be used by emergency responders (and planners) to gain an understanding of animal, people and environmental risks to mobilise the correct resources and make good operational decisions.

It follows the principles of normal risk assessment, but gives an appreciation of the additional aspects of an animal incident that might not be recognised without training.
