Line Of Duty Death

Statement of fact:
• Every year more than 100 firefighters are killed in the line of duty
• Every year more than 15 EMS responders are killed in the line of duty
• Every year more than 120 Police Officers are killed in the line of duty
• Thousands more are seriously injured in the line of duty
• Sadly, less than 25% of emergency response agencies are prepared for any of these catastrophic events!

line of duty death

A line of duty death (LODD) or serious injury is the most difficult event any Fire, EMS or Law Enforcement agency will have to face. Being unprepared for such an event will define you as a Chief, manager, or leader. It will forever change the way your department operates and affect its ability to recover and continue to serve.

CISM Perspectives offers seminars and expert consulting services for all emergency services to start building a LODD pre-plan, create a comprehensive Emergency Contact Form, and prepare for the many issues and challenges this tragedy will bring upon your agency.

Please see our article in the February 2002 edition of The CISM Perspective that speaks about writing a LODD pre-plan.
