Mission Statement

 

About the LLC


How We Got Here


The year 2012 marked the Wildland Fire Lessons Learned Center’s (LCC) tenth year of operation. This milestone became an opportunity to remember and reflect on how our LLC journey began.
 

We should never forget the 1994 South Canyon Fire that killed 14 wildland firefighters. This tragedy triggered the interagency TriData Firefighter Safety Awareness Study that recommended a permanent “lessons learned” program be established for wildland firefighters: Wildland Fire Safety Awareness Study Phase III. 

Consequently, in 2002 the Wildland Fire Lessons Learned Center was created. 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.

LLC Logo
LLC Logo: They are Forever Watching Over Us


In 1994, we lost 14 of our brothers and sisters to Colorado’s South Canyon Fire. (A total of 37 wildland firefighters died in the line-of-duty that year.) To honor our "South Canyon 14" our LLC logo has 14 stars surrounding the central, bigger star. These 14 stars represent the "South Canyon 14"—forever watching over us. The larger, central star represents the wildland fire community. We will never forget.
