United States Fire Administration: An Overview


The United States Fire Administration (USFA) is currently an entity within the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). Its mission is to provide leadership, coordination, and support for the nation's fire prevention and control, fire training and education, and emergency medical services activities, and to prepare first responders and health care leaders to react to all hazard and terrorism emergencies of all kinds. One of USFA's key objectives is to significantly reduce the nation's loss of life from fire, while also achieving a reduction in property loss and non-fatal injury due to fire. Although fire loss has improved significantly over the past 25 years, the fire problem in the United States remains serious. The United States still has one of the highest fire death rates in the industrialized world. According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), in 2011 there were 3,005 civilian fire deaths, 17,500 civilian fire injuries, and an estimated $11.66 billion in property damage. According to the NFPA, there were 61 on-duty firefighter deaths in 2011. Bills: H.R. 5855, H.R. 4130, S. 3216, S. 3254
