"The ability of fire departments to succeed in affecting the mission of protecting life, property and environment while reducing the risk to personnel, may to some extent be influenced by technology, command and control programs and/or fire behavior science. However, Mission Success is ALWAYS contingent on the 'Human Factors' - the Moral, Mental and Physical qualities and abilities of leaders."
