  • Description:
    The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) Fire Fighter Fatality Investigation and Prevention Program was established in October 1997. NIOSH conducts independent investigations of fire fighter line-of-duty deaths and develops a written investigation report which includes a summary of findings and recommendations for injury prevention. One of the primary goals of the program is the distribution of information to fire departments and fire fighters across the country for use in injury prevention efforts.

    Enclosed are copies of five fire fighter investigative reports and a Safety Advisory for your use and distribution to others in the fire fighting community. One report contains information on a fire fighter who was killed after the front awning and façade collapsed at a commercial structure. Another report covers the death of a fire fighter who became trapped at a residential fire while operating above the fire without a hose line. Two reports contain information about fire fighters who suffered heart attacks, one during a structure fire and one during physical fitness training. The last report contains information about a junior fire fighter who was killed when the tanker truck she was riding in failed to negotiate a sharp curve while responding to a structure fire. The Safety Advisory contains information from a recent investigation in which a fire fighter was struck and killed by an unsecured waterway that separated and was “launched” off an aerial ladder as the apparatus was being put into service for master stream operation.

    The reports are in the public domain and may be copied, duplicated, or distributed in any way you see fit. We encourage you to use the information contained in these reports to improve the safety of our nation’s fire fighters. To help us improve communication of this information, we would appreciate any feedback regarding the usefulness of these reports and how you used or further distributed the information. You may send comments to me at the address shown above. Your input will help us better meet your needs for information on the risks and prevention o f fire fighter injuries and deaths.
