Firefighter Fatalities in the United States
This report contains overall statistics from NFPA's study on on-duty firefighter fatalities in 2016. It includes patterns by type of duty at time of fatal injury, cause and nature of injury, age, type of incident and type of property involved in fires. In addition to these incident-specific deaths, a growing body of research and data show the contributions that job-related exposures have in chronic illnesses, such as cancer and heart disease, and in behavioral health issues that may end in suicide.
