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.

As Fire, EMS and other first responders work around the clock to assess and mitigate the COVID-19 spread nationwide, we stand with you. And we’re here to help. Join us on Thursday, March 26, to learn directly from first responders on the front lines about how they’re handling street operations; dealing with potential infections among their own; preparing and sanitizing their stations and equipment; and ensuring they have the technology they need to effectively communicate.

New research puts the economic impact of firefighter injuries at $1.6 billion to $5.9 billion annually—a staggering sum that, due to the lack of available data, doesn’t capture the full effect such injuries have on firefighters, their families and their departments. Join Lexipol and a panel of fire service experts for insight into what we know about firefighter injuries, how we can collect information to better understand the problem, and how we can use policies and safe culture practices to reduce firefighter injuries.
