Topic Progress:

Most fireline injuries and fatalities, including those resulting from fire entrapments, are the result of fireline personnel not following safe work procedures.

Fireline personnel must approach every fireline situation with a ‘safety first’ attitude.

Remember that no fire suppression tasks are considered sufficiently urgent to justify any risk-taking or shortcuts with safe work procedures.
