In 2002 the Wildland Fire Lessons Learned Center was created in response to the loss of 14 firefighters on the 1994 South Canyon fire. This tragedy triggered the interagency TriData Firefighter Safety Awareness Study that recommended a permanent “lessons learned” program be established for wildland firefighters. Today, the LLC operates as a national, interagency, federally-funded organization with interagency staffing. The LLC’s primary goal continues to be striving to improve safe work performance and organizational learning for all wildland firefighters.
