In addition to the report on the entrapment of the two firefighters on the Horseshoe 2 fire, the Wildland Fire Lessons Learned Center has posted reports on several recent accidents and near-accidents on fires:
- The short-haul extraction of a firefighter that was hit by a rolling rock “the size of a Volkswagen Beetle” on the Las Conchas fire in New Mexico, July 2, 2011.
- The extraction of a firefighter who was injured by a falling tree on the Hastings Fire near Fairbanks, Alaska, June 16, 2011.
- The 24-hour report on the crew carrier that overturned in southern California on July 4, 2011, injuring nine firefighters. (Wildfire Today originally covered this on July 5.)
- An Interagency Aviation Accident Prevention Bulletin. An excerpt: “There have been multiple airspace related events with conditions that could lead to a mid-air collision. Analysis of past and recent near mid-air collisions revealed that communications, deviation from standard operating procedures, and situational awareness were common contributing factors.”
