The U. S. Fire Administration (USFA) has tracked the number of firefighter fatalities and conducted an annual analysis for 36 years.
Through the collection of information on the causes of firefighter deaths, the USFA is able to focus on specific problems and direct efforts toward finding solutions to reduce the number of firefighter fatalities in the future. This information is also used to measure the effectiveness of current programs directed toward firefighter health and safety.
