Each year in the U.S., approx. 100 fire fighters die in the line of duty. In 1998, Congress appropriated funds to NIOSH for a fire fighter safety initiative. NIOSH developed and implemented the Fire Fighter Fatality Invest. and Prevention Program (FFFIPP), the goal of which is to reduce the number of fire fighter fatalities. NIOSH conducts investigations of line-of-duty fire fighter deaths to identify contributing factors and to generate recommend. for prevention. This document is a synthesis of the 1, 286 individual recommend. from the 335 FFFIPP investigations conducted from 1998 to 2005. The fire service should use this document to develop, update, and implement policies, programs, and training to prevent fatalities among fire fighters.
