DA Form 285, Technical Report of U.S. Army Ground Accident, is a form used by supervisors to report any accident that happened on U.S. Army grounds and resulted in a serious injury, death, or damage to property and equipment. The DA 285 is submitted for all Army aircraft accidents, non-Army motor vehicle accidents, and Army fires.
The latest edition of the report - sometimes confused with the DD Form 285, Appointment of Military Postal Clerk, Unit Mail Clerk or Mail Orderly - was released by the Department of the Army (DA) on February 1, 2009. An up-to-date DA Form 285 fillable version is available for digital filing and download below or can be found through the Army Publishing Directorate website.
