06/14/11 91 W, 2 I - + 4 - 2 Firefighter Fatality Reports

Firefighter Close Calls yesterday passed along a pair of firefighter fatality reports. They're from the NFPA and USFA, and provide details and statistics about the on-duty firefighter deaths in 2010. Each agency also has differing criteria for classifying a firefighter fatality as on-duty, thus the difference between the totals. The NFPA lists 72, the USFA lists 85. As Chief Goldfeder notes in his latest posting to the Secret List, both of their processes for analysis are relatively close to each other.
