In fiscal year 2001, Congress allocated funds for NIOSH to establish a new program for personal protective technology research to protect the nation’s miners, firefighters and other emergency responders, and health care, agricultural, and industrial workers.

Heart disease causes 45% of the deaths that occur among U.S. firefighters while
they are on duty. We examined duty-specific risks of death from coronary heart
disease among on-duty U.S. firefighters from 1994 to 2004.
We reviewed summaries provided by the Federal Emergency Management Agency
of the deaths of all on-duty firefighters between 1994 and 2004, except for deaths
associated with the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.

A properly prepared and approved Records Retention Schedule is an agency’s legal
authority to do whatever needs to be done with records and documents entrusted to the

energy required in military operations make it the largest energy consumer in the US economy.
To me, the most extraordinary example of poor preparedness took place
in the last week of September 2005. The South had just begun the long
