2015 WOR Day 1: Take 5@2 Introduction
Week of Remembrance June 30-July 6, 2015
Look at the times below…Careful analysis of wildland fire fatality statistics and records reveal that most (not all) burnover events have occurred between 1400 and 1630. Taking a tactical pause at 1400 may be an appropriate time for line-going and operational personnel to step back for a moment and reevaluate their situational awareness. It can be used as an opportunity to remember that this is the beginning of a dangerous part of the day for fighting fires and increased caution is in order.
Throughout the week of June 30-July 6, we encourage you and your crew to consider using the idea of “Take 5@2” and to use the tools in each 6 Minutes for Safety to help assess the reality of your current situation.
Today is dedicated to the 19 firefighters that lost their lives on the Yarnell Hill Fire in Arizona 2 years ago today.
The “Take 5@2” safety messages are a cooperative project of 6 Minutes for Safety, the Wildland Fire Safety Training Annual Refresher (WFSTAR), NIFC External Affairs, the NWCG Leadership Committee, the NWCG Risk Management Committee, and the Wildland Fire Lessons Learned Center.
