TriData Study: Successes

We are a learning organization that looks back at our "roots." In part 2 of the Wildland Fire Lessons Learned Centers series on the Wildland Fire Safety Awareness study, we look at the successes we have accomplished related to the study.

Here are some of the successes identified by our fire leaders:
  • Firefighter asked for their input regarding safety. (Sutton)
  • Creation of the Wildland Fire Leadership Development Program. (DeGrosky, Cook, Sutton, Livingston, Fisher)
    • Cultural change
    • Awareness on human factors and how that affects behavior on the fire ground.
    • Focus on decision-making
    • Creation of experiential learning tools.
  • Better understanding of the science of fighting fire. (DeGrosky)
  • Creation of the Wildland Fire Lessons Learned Center with a focus on high reliability organizing. (Browles, DeGrosky, Livingston, Aldrich, Glenn)
  • Right of refusal to turn down assignments. (Browles & Livingston)
  • On the job training. (Livingston, Fisher)
