Self-Contained Breathing Apparatus
NIOSH’s Fire Fighter Fatality Investigation and Prevention Program (FFFIPP) conducts independent investigations of select firefighter line-of-duty deaths. These investigations provide recommendations to prevent future deaths and injuries. NIOSH NPPTL assists the FFFIPP with these investigations by evaluating SCBAs worn by firefighters during incidents.
The following categories provide information about NIOSH NPPTL’s SCBA evaluations to support the FFFIPP.
