Summary
 The 320 Road Entrapment Avoidance Facilitated Learning Analysis (FLA) was requested by theBlack Hills Forest Supervisor to learn what occurred on the Coal Canyon Fire on August 12, 2011. An FLA Team was assembled to help firefighters identify Lessons Learned that could prevententrapments and injuries in the futureOn August 11, 2011, during the initial attack phase of the Coal Canyon Fire, on the Hell CanyonRanger District of the Black Hills National Forest an entrapment occurred taking the life of firefighter Trampus Haskvitz. The fire was located mid-slope in a deep canyon with poor access. The resulting run on theafternoon of August 11 left the fire somewhere around 50 to 100 acres. The topography is fractured with steep canyon walls vegetated with a mix of open and closed ponderosa pine stands mixed withjuniper and in some areas a heavy component of pine regeneration stands. There is no recent firehistory in the area, although the surrounding areas have hosted several fires over the past twodecades.Prior to the fatality, a local Type 3 Incident Management Team (IMT) was ordered to take control of the fire. After the fatality, a Type 2 IMT was ordered. Resources began arriving during the lateafternoon of August 11. The afternoon of August 12 during burnout operations on Division Zulu, firefighters experienced asudden increase in fire behavior and were forced to implement entrapment avoidance proceduresthat resulted in no injuries to personnel. During the event a crew vehicle caught on fire andsustained significant damage to the rear of the vehicle. The leaders involved made good decisionsthat resulted in a good outcome for their crews.Following this event, the Type 3 Incident Commander (IC) decided to pull all resources off the lineand reassess the situation.On August 15, the Black Hills Forest Supervisor delegated authority to an FLA Team to helpfirefighters share their story and Lessons Learned on the 320 Road.
