"The objective of this study was to identify all of the on-duty firefighter fatalities, occurring in the U.S. in 1994, and analyze the circumstances surrounding firefighter fatalities. The study is intended to help identify potential approaches that could reduce the number of deaths that occur each year. In addition to the 1994 findings, this study includes a special analysis of wildland firefighting fatalities, which claimed an unusually high number of lives this year, and an analysis of risk management and recognition in the fatal incidents. This report continues a series of annual studies by the U.S. Fire Administration of firefighter fatalities in the United States."
