National Fallen Firefighters Foundation (NFFF)

Vulnerability Assessment Tool

Program Overview (

The National Fallen Firefighters Foundation (NFFF), in coordination with the U.S. Fire Administration (USFA), has developed an online Vulnerability Assessment Tool that will provide fire departments with a systematic process to evaluate risk and ultimately reduce the threat of firefighter injuries and deaths. Honeywell has chosen to financially support the Vulnerability Assessment Project, and to supply leadership throughout its development.

At the end of the process, users have a customized report identifying areas of vulnerability linked to firefighter injuries and deaths. Each report contains suggestions for “risk reduction alternatives” specific to identified vulnerabilities and provides pertinent industry standards and guidelines to address the identified concerns.

Fire departments can then use this analysis to develop operational and strategic plans to implement the risk reduction recommendations necessary to minimize or eliminate predictable causes of line-of-duty injuries and deaths.
