The 16 Firefighter Life Safety Initiatives were jointly developed by representatives of the major fire service constituencies in 2004 at a Firefighter Safety Summit in Tampa, FL. At that time, the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation was tasked with promulgating the Initiatives throughout the fire service, and developing material to support their implementation.
Since then, the Initiatives have deeply informed the emerging safety culture in the US fire service, and become the bedrock foundation for thousands of fire departments and EMS organizations who have a desire to ensure that their firefighters and medics return home safely after every shift.
