Preliminary Loss Reports (PLRs)

About Preliminary Loss Reports (PLRs)

Preliminary Loss Reports provide leaders with awareness of Army loss and highlight potential trends that affect combat readiness. Within 72 hours of a loss, PLRs provide a synopsis of the incident: unit, date of loss, description of the activity at the time of the death. PLRs do not identify root causes of an accident, as the investigation is ongoing. Further details will be available later on RMIS (account required).

  • Any intersection is potentially hazardous, whether it has stoplights, stop signs or
    is unmarked.

  • The majority of multi-vehicle motorcycle crashes generally are caused when other
    drivers simply didn’t see the motorcyclist. Proceed cautiously at intersections and
    yield to pedestrians and other vehicles as appropriate.

  • Be mentally prepared for every ride and assume vehicles may pull out in front of you.
