FIRE FIGHTER FATALITY INVESTIGATION AND PREVENTION PROGRAM

Fire Fighter Fatality Investigation Reports

Through the Fire Fighter Fatality Investigation and Prevention Program, NIOSH conducts investigations of fire fighter line-of-duty deaths to formulate recommendations for preventing future deaths and injuries. The program does not seek to determine fault or place blame on fire departments or individual fire fighters, but to learn from these tragic events and prevent future similar events.

Criteria Selection:
State = NC   Incident Year = ALL   Trauma-Related = All   Medical-Related = All
