[WASHINGTON D.C., 09/21/2022] – Firefighters & EMS Fund has published an in-depth analysis of work-related firefighter deaths over the last 10 years. The Firefighter Fatality Report: 2012-2022 explores fatality trends over the last decade, including deaths by location, rank, age, and cause.
The report was compiled by analyzing reported work-related deaths for firefighters across all 50 states and US territories, including Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands. The years studied were 2012 through the current year to date reports in 2022.
“Ultimately, our goal with this analysis was to provide insight into these tragic deaths on what might be causing them and who might be most at risk. We hope that this report will be informative, and awareness can be raised around the issue of firefighter mortality. Hopefully, we can even use this information to reduce work related deaths in the future,” Firefighters & EMS Fund Executive Director Jane Porter said in a statement.
