RETEX - Lessons Learned through the Return of Experience
RETEX comes from an old French term, Le retour de l'expérience, meaning: "The Return of Experience".
The term RETEX has been in use on Belgium for some time, and is slowly becoming more known internationally.
RETEX is a specific way of sharing Lessons Learned through a formula of breaking down what happened,
what went right, what went wrong, and what emergency services anywhere can learn from a particular incident.
RETEX is typically shared as a written document with photos, diagrams and drawings as illustrations,
but could also include videos, or be in the form of an educational style video.
