NIOSH's Fire Fighter Fatality Investigation & Prevention Program conducts investigations of select work-related fire fighter deaths. In an interactive map format, this site identifies fire fighter deaths that have "pending" or "completed" investigations. Completed investigations have links to final reports. Fatality data from the U.S. Fire Administration (USFA) are shown in the interactive map for the investigated deaths as well as all other fire fighter deaths. The data can also be formatted in tabular data views. Data have not been updated since NIOSH began maximal teleworking in 2020.
