Just a few short days after my last post, I was called on a difficult assignment. Three wildland firefighters injured in a helicopter crash in the Trinity Alps in northern California, seven missing and feared dead. Their employer, Grayback Forestry, devastated and being bombarded by media calls. I partnered again with my friend Leslie Habetler and we answered the phone and answered questions non-stop for 4 or 5 days. I arranged interviews and spoke on the company’s behalf.
I’ll have several “after action” posts, I’m sure, detailing my experience and what lessons I can share with my readers. Right now, I’m a little exhausted and trying to catch my breath from being on site at the southern end of Oregon for 10 days.
