    Abstract

    Motivation - To improve Emergency Response activity by designing technical support to maintain a common operational picture (COP) of the emergency situation.
    Research approach - A design experiment was conducted to test solutions to support identification of hazardous gases in an accident. A new method was proposed to tackle the known design problem labelled the "task-artefact-cycle" and to identify promisingness of technologies in a future context of use.
    Findings/Design - The results reveal decision making demands in a fire situation, how they are tackled in the present practice, and what added value the tested new technology might bring.
    Research limitations/Implications - The study was a first case in which the proposed method was used.
    Originality/Value - The research proposes a theoretically based new method for analysis of user activity in the design context.
    Take away message - The "task-artefact cycle" can be tackled by creating conceptually oriented formative methods of activity analysis.
