Lessons Learned from a Firefighter Line of Duty Death: Fire Chief Edition
A lot of lessons can be learned when a firefighter dies in the line of duty, from the technical aspects to the effects on personnel, and this presentation will look at several line of duty death incidents to examine what happened. From the personnel aspect, The Fire Chief is one position within the organization that can become isolated through the grieving and recovery phases due to a wide range of unique emotional, personal, political, social, legal, and relational aspects. Only someone who has experienced such an event can truly relate to these situations. To address the distinct need to support these individuals in their healing and recovery, and in an effort to ensure no one has to “walk alone” after a line-of-duty death, the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation has developed several uniformed peer support program initiatives. This presentation will also discuss the Chief to Chief, Incident Commander to Incident Commander, Company Officer to Company Officer and Coworker to Coworker programs. Speakers will include personnel who have experienced a line-of-duty death to share their story, discuss lessons learned, and relate to the importance of the peer support programs.

#FireServiceOneVoice
As the U.S. Fire Administration prepared for the 2022 Fire Administrator’s Summit on Fire Prevention and Control, every major national organization was asked to stand with the USFA to identify and move forward a set of goals for the good of the whole fire service. These discussions led to the Fire Service National Strategy.
