Our Inspiration: The Staggering FACTS...

The current health statistics for firefighters inspire Food on the Stove’s efforts to improve what’s on the stove at our local firehouses…
  • Cardiac death was the leading cause of on-duty firefighter death in the United States.
  • Stress and overexertion was the most impactful risk factor for cardiac arrest. It is the root cause for 98% of cardiac fatalities among firefighters. 
  • Firefighters face a 9% increase in cancer diagnoses and a 14% increase in cancer-related deaths compared to the general population.
