“I just wanted to send you all a note to report that so far this year, there have been 33 (13, 15, 3 and 2) firefighters on four separate fires that have needed to deploy fire shelters. All have been survived, one remains hospitalized but will recover. All incidents are still under investigation or being reviewed, but I can say that fire shelters were likely THE key to their survival. The reports should be released later this fall/winter.
As we know, we could have a different outcome tomorrow, but I wanted you to know that I am grateful for all your hard work and contributions to our product.”
