Everyone Goes Home – Firefighter Life Safety Initiatives

Everyone Goes Home® strives to prevent firefighter line‑of‑duty deaths and injuries.

In March 2004, a Firefighter Life Safety Summit was held to address the need for change within the fire service. At this summit, the 16 Firefighter Life Safety Initiatives were created and a program was born to ensure that Everyone Goes Home.

Our goal is to help the U.S. Fire Administration achieve its objective of reducing the number of preventable firefighter fatalities.

Thanks in large part to the support of our partners like the US Fire Administration, American Red Cross, Phoenix Society, Vision 20/20, National Fallen Firefighters Foundation, National Association of State Fire Marshalls, and many, many others, these youth are part of an exciting movement to make a difference.
