Abstract This report documents an effort initiated by the U.S. Army Research Institute for the Behavioral and Social Sciences (ARI) to refine behavioral training themes for crisis response and expand the Red Cape training methodology. As a part of the research and development, a web-based collaborative training program for use in a distributed environment and theme- based training vignettes for the U.S. Army Management Staff College's Garrison Pre-commander Course were developed. The research expands the theme-based training method to allow personnel from multiple, distributed agencies to train on large-scale crisis events. The research refined the Red Cape crisis action themes based on a cognitive task analysis with experts and developed scenarios within Think Under Fire Decisions (TUF-D), a rapid training development tool. The training system also incorporates an instructional overview guide and assessment tools, along with a vignette creation tool that allows individuals to rapidly develop training scenarios that address their specific needs and requirements.
