Regarding the rescue effort at Nutty Putty:

I think you all know that Utah County is responsible for any release of
information about the incident. I have been getting requests from all over the
place, as far as Italy, for information. Therefore, I called our Incident
Commander to discuss this. They too are getting numerous requests, from county
teams and cave rescue teams.

GRAMA or Government Records Access Management Act, is a set of laws that
viciously protect information. The IC understands the great value of the
information as a training tool. To avoid any problems, they are planning a
couple of things.

First, they plan to have a technical debrief with those involved.
Second, they are going to create a PowerPoint Presentation to disseminate the
information in a legal and uniform manner. Their idea is to do a minute by
minute recounting of the events and involving all of the actors.

If you were involved, please send me a report of your activities. UCS&R keeps
its own records, and I will pass them along to the IC. Here's your chance
people. You did the work, now lets document it.

I know that we all like to talk about the incident, but please be careful. This
was a Utah County operation. Please let them handle media releases and public
information. This is a UCS&R requirement. If you were there because of a request
from UCS&R, that applies to you.

Thanks.

There is already a quite active thread regarding this subject on Cavechat.org with several Utah cavers participating.

Also, see the Colorado Caving Forum for a discussion.

I find it interesting that Utah cavers find this forum a nearly intolerable way to disseminate information and/or participate in a conversation but will very actively participate on Cavechat.org.
