"The number of firefighter fatalities has steadily decreased over the last 25 years, from a high of 171 in 1978 to a low of 75 in 1992. Despite this trend in absolute terms, approximately 100 firefighters are killed in the line of duty each year and tens of thou-sands are injured. In 2000, 102 firefighters died. This report details the circumstances surrounding their deaths and briefly examines trends in firefighter mortality." This paper was revised December 2001.
