The NWCG Report on Wildland Firefighter Fatalities in the United States: 2007-2016 is a report examining the causes of death for firefighters who work for various organizations across the United States. We assessed trends and common factors of fatalities to help mitigate those factors and reduce future firefighter fatalities. This report is an update of the publication Wildland Firefighter Fatalities in the United States: 1990-2006, PMS 841, in which the NWCG examined wildland firefighter fatalities between 1990 and 1998 and between 1999 and 2006. In this current report, we assess fatalities between 2007 and 2016 (the most recent period).
