In his review of hundreds of near-miss reports, case studies, line-of-duty death reports and videos, the presenter continually found himself being frustrated because there were so many clues, indicators and signs that the incident was going to end in disaster. Yet, for some reason, personnel operating at the incident scene—from company officers to incident commanders—could not see it coming.  Or if they did see it coming, they did nothing to alter their course.
