During a Mass Casualty Incident, it is essential to make effective decisions to save lives and nursing the injured. This paper presents a work in progress on the design and development of an explainable decision support system, intended for the medical personnel and care givers, that capitalises on multiple modalities to achieve situational awareness and pre-hospital life support. Our novelty is two-fold: first, we use state-of-the-art techniques for combining static and time-series data in deep recurrent neural networks, and second we increase the trustworthiness of the system by enriching it with neurosymbolic explainable capabilities.
