In July 1984, explosions and fire at an Illinois refinery claimed 17 lives. Of those, 11 who died were industrial responders, the most ever lost in a single incident.
In 2005, a total of 87 on-duty firefighter deaths occurred in the U.S. None of those deaths were industrial firefighters. Thankfully, fatality rates for industrial firefighters are non-existent most years, even if an unacceptable number of workers are still being lost. The year 1984 is one of the most painful exceptions with regard to industrial firefighter deaths.
