This project analyzed methods to increase the safety of firefighters and to provide for solid public protection. Research was focused on staffing levels and training of fire departments in the Worcester area. A succession of interviews and correspondences were conducted to gather this information. The data was analyzed for correlations between staffing, training, injury levels and the budget. Results of this analysis are presented along with a series of recommendations for future studies.
