less than efficient and letting the materials below burn and creating a compartmentalized fire space, this could have been prevented by proper training and operating procedures (Madrzykowski D., 2016).The water system in the city was compromised during the fire as well as having a power outage. Most systems installed for safety and prevention should have a secondary source. Even if it is an engineered power generator specifically for the facility, that is only for outages (Brakhage, C., Abrams, A., & Fortney, J., 2016). The water pump was not the properly UL certified design, was installed using elbows which is not regulation, and the city was having a water shortage which most likely added to the lack of water pressure. But having better overall housekeeping, organization and administrative controls could have limited the fire and possibly been less of a devastation to the facility overall.
