US Fire service

I happened to come across the Fire Engineering website. It seems to contains some very valuable information.

I found this a paper Learning from Firefighter Fatalities very interesting. It is a discussion dating from 2004. I think it will be interesting to anyone working in a hazardous industry. Firefighters have to deal with emergencies far more often than most organisations. They have plenty of experience of what can go wrong.

The site includes a continually updating section notifying of Line of Duty Deaths. A very sobering read.

Firefighters drills is another section that looks interesting. You don't need to be a full time firefighter to be involved in emergency response.
