Lucky or Good Training
When I first saw the News report of the Air France crash I thought that there would be hundreds of lives lost if not all lost. The next day I was happy to hear that no lives and few not serious injuries. Yes I thought lucky but after being in this business over the years I have found two things makes a difference on the out come. Training and organization have been the best tool for a good out come. I have seen many incidents that should have been a snap but end up in a tragic incident or a total disaster that we walk away like an every day call. Training like we work like the USMC says "the harder you sweat in training the less you bleed in the battle" We look over the ages at successful departments they all have active training programs. No I don't think Luck had anything to do with it but good training byToronto Airport Authority, Mississauga and Toronto Fire Department. Good Job!
