fireifhgter fatality stats.
I am trying to give a class on firefighter survival awareness to my son's explorer program. Some of the suggested material covers firefighter fatalities in the line of duty. More to the point is firefighters that have been trapped in structures etc. Does anyone know where I can go to get the details of some of the more recent incidents? I want to make an impact on them and get them to understand how important this is. Any help is greatly appreciated. Stay safe!!

This link is to the NIOSH Firefighter Fatality Investigation Program search page. Enter your criteria, and it should return all of the investigations you're looking for.Steve Gallagher

USFA publishes a book called "Firefighter Fatalities in the United States" annually. You can order it for free online at the USFA/FEMA publications site.
(The most recent year available is probably 2005 or so.)
Here it is:

The Code is more what you'd call "guidelines" than actual rules.
