June 2020 Monthly Safety Alert – Wildfire Hazards: Danger Trees

Wildfire Hazards: Danger Trees

Both forestry workers and fire crews responding to wildfires will be exposed to risks and hazards that exist in a wildfire environment.

A danger tree is any tree that presents a hazard to workers due to lean, physical damage, overhead condition, deterioration or any combination of these factors. A tree does not have to be dead to be a danger tree and a dead tree is not necessarily dangerous.

This Safety Alert will provide crucial information to help identify tree hazards and assess the risks to create a safety plan – June 2020 Safety Alert
