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.
