NO COST-ONLINE FIRE INCIDENT COMMANDER TRAINING:
The National Fallen Firefighters Foundation, in cooperation with Stonehouse Media, is pleased to present When an LODD Occurs: Incident Commanders Speak. This new proactive one-hour training module will prepare officers for the unique challenges that occur in the aftermath.
While no incident commander wants to be involved in an LODD, the reality is if a tragedy occurs on their watch, they are thrust into an experience like no other. Only other incident commanders who have faced these same tragedies can understand. One incident commander described it as “a very exclusive club that no one ever wants to join.”
The “When an LODD Occurs: Incident Commanders Speak” course incorporates this knowledge and addresses the potential psychological and operational impact of a firefighter line-of-duty death. It provides the IC with guidance for meeting the needs of the surviving family and department members, as well as tips for accessing behavioral health resources. This self-paced online course also addresses how to handle media scrutiny, prepares them to participate in an operational review of the incident, and brings awareness of potential legal issues.
