NFFF – Vulnerability Assessment Tool

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.

At the end of the assessment, users have a customized report identifying areas of vulnerability linked to firefighter injuries and deaths. Each report contains suggestions for risk reduction strategies 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.

This program is free, and it is 100% confidential. The reporting party can see their individual answers, but no one else can. This was by design to reduce potential liability issues. We are implementing a process allowing agencies to retake the exam year after year to chart their progress.
