NFPA’s recent report U.S. Unintentional Fire Death Rates by State analyzes which states have higher and lower death rates per million population relative to each other, and some of the factors that correlate with states having a high death rate. The report found that Hawaii has the lowest risk per population and that Mississippi has the highest risk. NFPA members can download the full report, and anyone can find out more about any of the states by using the interactive map below.
