There would be whats called a PDA(Pre determined attendance) for a fire to a high rise building. Initial turnout Possibly 3 pumps and an aerial platform, Some of the guys who work in the fire service on here would know. The incident commander would then decide what additional resources he needed. A systemic failure is just a nice way of saying " we'll skimp on the fire brigade budget and then hope nothing comes back to bite us on the arse". Fighting fires in high rise is no simple task without the added problems of it being wrapped in accelerant material. Doubt if Sir Martin Moore-Bick ever risked his life to save anyone or anything.https://www.thejournal.ie/grenfell-tower-inquiry-report-2019-4870321-Oct2019/
'Serious shortcomings' in response of fire service likely led to more deaths. "Systemic failures" also mentioned. Which is what I said. I never said anything about fire plans for specific buildings, or anything about what caused the fire.
