November 15

Another rough day, historically, for Line of Duty Deaths. In addition to the 4 below pulled from NIOSH reports, Firefighterclosecalls.com lists several other, older LODD’s. One of my first training memories is of an officer examining a Line of Duty Death (1984 below) included showing this video so we could all learn something from the tragedy.
