USFA studies and initiatives in various areas of safety and health


The U. S. Fire Administration is prolific in its production of cutting edge, timely research on firefighter health, safety and survival. USFA often partners with the National Institute of Standards and Technology, U. S. Departments of Transportation and Justice, International Association of Fire Chiefs, International Association of Fire Fighters, National Volunteer Fire Council and others to provide the best research and practices that can reduce your line of duty deaths and injuries.


Being in the fire and emergency services professional development community, you are in the unique position to inform the students in your training and college courses about this research. You can build class assignments, project and discussions around them. Most importantly, you are in the position to make a difference. For every new firefighter training or degree-seeking fire science student, you can empower them with information that can keep them safe and show them where to find this information as needed throughout their careers.


Attached are three flyers of USFA studies and initiatives in various areas of safety and health. Please do your part to share this information with your students, staffs and co-workers.
