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:

Unless you can work with both feet on the ground and the job is a simple pruning of small branches, consider hiring a professional tree service.

  • Working at height requires proper training and protection due to a number of risky variables such as electrical wires, wildlife, nearby fences, buildings or homes.

  • It takes knowledge, skill and expertise to correctly estimate where a larger limb will fall when cut from the tree.

  • Professionals use the right kind of equipment and proper safety precautions to prevent catastrophic results from miscalculations.

  • If you are trimming your own trees:

  • Assume all power lines are energized.

  • Do not work on any trees within 10 feet of a power line; leave that to the pros.

  • Wear personal safety equipment.

  • Do not work in dangerous weather conditions.

  • Use caution on ladders and lifts.

  • Do not climb with tools.
