FIRE FIGHTER FATALITY INVESTIGATION AND PREVENTION PROGRAM
Each year an average of 100 fire fighters die in the line of duty. To address this continuing national occupational fatality problem, NIOSH conducts independent investigations of fire fighter line of duty deaths. This web page provides access to NIOSH investigation reports and other fire fighter safety resources.
NIOSH has released a new fact sheet targeted to wildland fire fighters and supervisors. The fact sheet Wildland Fire Fighting Hot Tips to Stay Safe and Healthy offers recommendations to help keep wildland fire fighters safe and healthy while on the job.
