No amount of skill or caution on the part of a firefighter can guarantee his or her safety in the event of a building collapse. Injuries sustained by a firefighter as a result of a building collapse are typically very serious, if not fatal. Property owners are responsible for ensuring that their buildings are constructed and maintained in accordance with applicable building codes and regulations so that firefighters are not unnecessarily put in harms way when performing their duties.
