News & Information

Much of the United States has marginal or inadequate fire protection, placing people and property at risk.

Every 19 seconds, a fire department somewhere in the United States responds to a fire. According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), fire departments fought almost 1.7 million fires in 2002, the latest year for which figures are available. And each year, fire kills more Americans than all natural disasters combined.

The NFPA estimates that there are some 1.1 million firefighters in the United States. Those brave men and women serve valiantly every day, and all types of fire departments — career, volunteer, and combination — provide excellent public protection. But throughout the country, fire departments contend with strained budgets, inadequate equipment, insufficient water supplies, and a variety of other significant obstacles.

According to the Congressional Fire Services Institute, "The number one need in the American fire service is financial resources to provide staffing, purchase the needed equipment and access relevant training."
