Recently, there was a major fire outage reported. The building maintenance team informed the fire brigade department. The fire brigade came in, helped douse the fire and tried to salvage whatever they could. The owner of the building demanded an independent assessment of the reasons behind the fire, what triggered it and how to make sure this does not happen again. The building maintenance team called in an independent assessment team and asked them to comb the carnage and find out what might have caused this!

The independent assessment team went through the motions of accumulating the evidence, looking for telltale signs of what might have gone wrong and then eventually did an event reconstruction on how events would have unfolded on that day. Subsequently, the team came out with the recommendations that need to be implemented to make sure that such an outage does not happen again.
