Concerning wildland fire vehicle accidents: the March 1999 technical report from MTDC “Wildland Fire Fatalities in the U.S.: 1990-1998″ shows that 19% of fatalities in that period were from vehicle accidents, and 23% from aircraft crashes.

This year is way outside of the norm, and should be raising lots of “Red Flag Warnings” among firefighters and fire managers alike.

The report is available on the Web at the www.fs.fed.us/fire/fire_new/ref_material/content/fatalities.pdf
