    The Firefighter Safety Series is a multipart information package from the National Wildland/Urban Interface Fire Program. It addresses problems faced by structural and wildland firefighters when fighting fires, especially those threatening structures in the wildland/urban interface. An important goal is to improve knowledge of firefighter safety and survival issues.

    Some of the material in the Firefighter Safety Series was originally prepared in the late 1980s and early 1990s in video and print form and published by the National Wildland/Urban Interface Fire Program.

    The National Wildland/Urban Interface Program is made up of organizations committed to reducing the toll of structures lost in the wildland/urban interface, and to reducing the toll of firefighters deaths and injuries. Fires in the wildland/urban interface bring together the separate suppression forces of local, state, and federal wildland agencies. Inherent differences in these forces provide challenges in incident command, tactics, communications, and the use of equipment. The message of the sponsoring agencies and of this educational project is to encourage planning and training to occur before the next big emergency and to be more cautious when approaching any interface fire.

    The video on firefighter safety attempts to motivate firefighters to stop and think to themselves, "I can die fighting fires. I need to take fire seriously and learn as much as I can about it. A little knowledge can save my life."

    The stories presented in the video are real, and they are emotional.
