CRIMINAL COMPLAINT

CASE NUMBER: MJ-06-308


The Investigations

Both the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the Forest Service conducted investigations into the events that resulted in the deaths of the firefighters. The initial Forest Service investigation, known as the Safety & Accident Investigation, involved representatives from the Forest Service and other agencies that have experience in firefighting operations such as the Bureau of Land Management, the National Weather Service, and the national Interagency Fire Center. OSHA and the Forest Service did a joint, videotaped interview with Mr. Daniels on July 12, 2001. A different member of the Safety & Accident Investigation Team did a brief, supplemental interview with Mr. Daniels on July 12, 2001. OSHA did a follow-up, audio taped interview on August 9, 2001.

After the Safety & Accident Investigation Team released a report that was very critical of the performance of Forest Service managers and supervisors on the Thirtymile Fire, to include that Mr. Daniels and others displayed a serious lack of situational awareness, and concluded that the deaths should not have occurred, the Forest Service commissioned an Administrative Review Team to examine the performance of the Forest Service senior personnel on the Thirtymile Fire and to determine whether administrative discipline would be appropriate.

The Administrative Review Team interviewed Mr. Daniels on March 14, 2002, and he signed a written declaration on March 28, 2002. After discipline was proposed, Mr. Daniels met with the Oral Reply Team on August 27, 2002. The Forest Service removed Daniels from the fire program. He now works at the supply cache.
