Video illustrates a need to always explore our mistakes.
Or what appears to be mistakes.
Recidivism applies to behavioral relapses, usually criminal, and anti-social behavior.
It is also part of a measure in determining success and fail rates in behavior modification.
The fire service needs to consider recidivism. Not in the criminal context but in the evaluation of the methods used to transition education from training to actual event.
Unless, of course, we’re all okay with setting the bar at “the fire went out, no one was hurt and everyone went home” level. If that’s the case, then disregard this.
It should also be noted that this was a fire in a vacant house.
No firefighters were injured so I imagine that may negate the errors in the minds of some.
