6. Protective Service

Number of deaths (2003-2009): 10
Average salary (2011): $39,880

Occupations such as police, firefighters and lifeguards risk their lives every day to protect the lives of strangers and their property. Police roadside deaths in particular made the news last year, when 28-year-old Garret Davis was killed at a traffic stop, sparking a push for the Move Over bill, which was signed into law in July 2012.  Not every job in this category is equally dangerous: Veteran North Shore lifeguard Mark Dombroski says deaths for lifeguards on the job are close to nil.
