It happened to them ... but when will it be us? We turn out day in and day out, normally expecting what to expect, but that’s not always the case. Sometimes, things don’t go as we thought they would. Sometimes, it goes far worse. Success and survival on the fireground have no guarantees; sometimes things go horribly wrong, even when we do our best. Other times, things go horribly wrong, and all the warning signs were there on the scene well before the fire even started. These are the fires we must learn from. The focus is on the proven facts of some recent fires. The lessons learned are taught with the resolve to honor those involved by not repeating fireground history.
