The number one killer of firefighters isn’t burns or smoke inhalation. According to Arcata Fire District Battalion Chief Sean Campbell, it’s stress and exertion, which kills about 50 firefighters each year nationwide. “It’s not uncommon for firefighters working at a scene or just after an incident to die of a heart attack or other stress or overexertion related illness.”
