Summary There is currently no consensus as to how “acceptable risk” should be defined in emergency service response. Attempts to address this have relied upon the assumption that a probabilistic model of risk can be calculated and that acceptable levels of risk can be determined. Examples of this process can be seen in a number of emergency services, e.g. dynamic risk assessment utilised by a number of fire services.
