Narrative
Describe in detail what happened including the concern or potential issue, the environment (weather, terrain, fire behavior, etc), and the resulting health issue.
Tender driver consumed unlabeled peanut based product by mistake and experience anaphylaxis...while driving type two tender during active fire situation. Needed emergency medical evacuation and hospitalized overnight. National Caterer contract clearly states that snack foods in lunches should be labeled and ingredients listed. Drivers life was clearly at risk and potentially others since he was driving type two tender.
Immediate Action Taken
Reporting Individual : please describe actions you took to correct or mitigate the unsafe/unhealthful event.
I have contacted the Medical unit leader, Connie Weeks, regarding caterer regulations. I am unsure if the practice continues.
