This number is a very significant but they also inherit roughly 30,000 firefighters a year. Also the #1 leading cause of death is either a heart attack or heat stroke. The average firefighter’s heart could not last forever because of the things they see and have to do.

The #2 major cause of firefighters death is on traffic accidents where a firefighter is struck by a vehicle passing by
