Safety risks for fire, EMS personnel in multicultural communities

The "hero" culture of the fire service increases the risk of injury and death when working within multicultural communities

FIRE 20/20, a nonprofit organization that developed tools and training to help career, combination and volunteer fire and emergency service departments, published a 2007 project aimed at the growing safety risks for fire/EMS personnel and civilians in multicultural communities. 

The research team collected data between September 2006 and February 2007. The six-month period was devoted to data analysis and report writing. You can read the Multicultural Health and Safety Research findings below.
