Fire Inspectors

History

Fire kills more Americans than all natural disasters combined. The National Fire Protection Association reports that fires in the U.S. caused 3,655 civilian deaths, 15,200 civilian injuries, and $25.6 billion in property damage in 2018. In this same year, 64 firefighters died in duty-related incidents. Fire inspectors use their knowledge of fire science, building codes, and fire-suppression methods to help eliminate this deadly problem.
