Do Not Go Quietly

Lifeflight8

The pilots were trained to react immediately to a light on a warning/caution panel, but as managers they paid less heed to what should have been ‘caution lights’ on a safety systems ‘panel’. There were plenty of safety systems caution lights on at Ornge Rotor-Wing. There was the proficiency caution light. There was the regulatory-oversight caution light. There was the management workload caution light.

And yet all went on quietly as though these lights were ornaments to be discussed, rather than warnings to be actioned.
