A line-of-duty death forever changes the fire department or agency and the community. So, where does a company officer who loses a firefighter in the line-of-duty turn for support after this tragedy?
The Company Officer-to-Company Officer Network grew out of a need expressed by company officers who had lost a firefighter in the line of duty. They said they felt very isolated after the death of a firefighter, that they had no one to turn to for advice and support.
The Foundation has established a network of company officers who have one thing in common. All experienced a line of duty death as a company officer and understand more than anyone what that means.
Company Officer-to-Company Officer Support
Network members share information on issues:
- Incident follow-up and investigations
- Support for the fallen firefighter’s family and co-workers
- Funeral and memorial service arrangements
- Requests for information from media and community
- Personal feelings of loss
All discussions are confidential.
