The article traces the development of firefighter protection programs in the United States since 1947 when President Harry Truman held a conference on fire prevention. In 1958, the International Association of Fire Fighters created the John P. Redmond Foundation to research occupational hazards related to firefighting. The first America Burning study, which focused on firefighter fatalities, was held in 1974. in 2005, the International Association of Fire Chiefs formed a firefighter safety, survival and reporting system.
