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:

If you are involved in a vehicle accident or other roadside emergency:

  • Pull over and out of traffic if possible. Even if all of the emergency lights are activated, some highway drivers do not pay close attention and could rear-end the disabled vehicle, causing further damage or injury.

  • If you must exit the vehicle, do so safely and well away from oncoming traffic and your vehicle.

  • If possible, you and any passengers should exit through the side of the vehicle facing away from the road.

  • Not only do you need to stay out of the roadway, you need to put as much distance as possible between you and the disabled vehicle until traffic has been diverted around it.
