When an active first responder dies, leaders must take multiple important steps in a short period of time — each with the potential for significant impact on the family, agency, and community.
One of the first steps is deciding how the death will be classified and treated by the agency. Did the death occur in the ‘line of duty?’ Or is ‘active duty’ more appropriate?
Either way, there are important ‘first steps’ that must be taken to properly, respectfully, and efficiently notify the family, initiate the rendering of appropriate immediate honors, and much more — especially if the death occurred as a result of duty.
If you are someone who might be tasked with taking, guiding, or assisting in taking or guiding those first steps, or if you simply want to know more about these most important topics, we encourage you to join us for…Honor, Benefits, and First Steps
