Organizational agility and learning from lessons play an important role in enhancing emergency management programs and the after-action review (AAR) facilitates this process. This paper discusses the role of the Office of the Fire Marshal and Emergency Management Ontario (OFMEM) and how it can better encourage the standardized use of the AAR by municipalities in Ontario. This paper reviews different methods and essential elements of the AAR and makes recommendations for the OFMEM to consider.
