Our mission is to reduce firefighter and EMS provider injury and death by helping the fire service apply local lessons globally.
Near Miss is an International Association of Fire Chiefs (IAFC)-managed program that collects and shares firefighter near-miss experiences. The program was generously begun in 2005 with grants from the Department of Homeland Security and Fireman's Fund Insurance Company. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 703-273-0911 to learn more.
We provide you with the means to anonymously share your near miss stories via an intuitive online reporting tool and share them out with the entire fire service.
We develop training materials based on the near miss stories we collect.
We compile data and look for trends to identify emerging hazards and advocate for firefighter safety.
"A near miss, like any error, is an opportunity to examine how mistakes are made and what changes might prevent them."
