Course Description:

One of the toughest situations to face is the line of duty death. The administrative and logistical aspects of a LODD are often overwhelming to those individuals and agencies that are ill prepared. This course will address many of those issues as well as give special attention to pre-incident planning and proper follow-up services. This interactive class has been designed to prepare Emergency Service providers, military personnel, school administrators, municipal officials as well as CISM teams who may need to address a Line of Duty Death.
