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 is pleased to support the 2013 IAFC Safety and Health Week. The theme for Safety and Health Week this year is “Saving Our Own...An Inside Job.” This year’s theme focuses on behavioral health. Behavioral health is as important as physical health to the wellbeing of firefighters and emergency medical personnel.
