NIOSH Fire Fighter Fatality Mapping Application Now Available
April 28, 2014
The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) Division of Safety Research has released a new web site entitled Fire Fighter Fatality Map. Developed to increase awareness of firefighter deaths and to provide quick access to up-to-date firefighter fatality information, the site combines firefighter fatality case information from the U.S. Fire Administration (USFA) with information about NIOSH firefighter fatality investigations.
Interactive maps show all USFA data and those with “pending” or “completed” NIOSH investigation reports. Links to NIOSH reports for fatalities that have been investigated through the NIOSH Fire Fighter Fatality Investigation and Prevention Program (FFFIPP) are included. The site is expected to be updated at least monthly with new or revised firefighter fatality information.
