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).

ENGAGEMENT TIPS

As a rider, you can’t be sure that other vehicle operators will see you or yield the right of way. To lessen your chances of a crash occurring, be visible - ride in the best lane position to see and be seen.

Also remember to:

  • Search your path of travel 12 seconds ahead.

  • Identify and separate hazards.

  • Be prepared to act — remain alert and know how to carry out proper crash-avoidance skills.
