To Report a Line-of-Duty Death – Call (866) 736-5868
The National Fallen Firefighters Foundation is committed to providing support to family members and fire departments of firefighters who died in the line-of-duty. The resources provided are intended to help guide family members and fire departments through the difficult aftermath of a line-of-duty death.
Criteria for Inclusion on the National Fallen Firefighters Memorial
Names added to the National Fallen Firefighters Memorial each October represent those line-of-duty deaths approved as eligible for inclusion from the previous calendar year (January 1 – December 31). All required documentation for cases in the previous year must be received by June 1st to be considered for inclusion that year.
Acceptance for inclusion on the National Fallen Firefighters Memorial doesn’t impact decisions made by the federal government regarding Public Safety Officers’ Benefits.
Project Roll Call identifies and honors firefighters who died in the line-of-duty prior to 1981, the establishment of the National Fallen Firefighters Memorial.
