"In the spring of 2005, the U.S. Department of Agriculture Forest Service Technology and Development Program's safety and health steering committee asked the Missoula Technology and Development Center (MTDC) to prepare a report identifying the unique personal safety problems public land-management field employees face while working near the Mexican border. The center also was instructed to make recommendations to the committee. All the Federal employees the project team interviewed felt they were working in a dangerous place and believed the dangers they faced were likely to increase."
