Line of Duty Death: Preparing the Best for the Worst (HCC-0066)

One of the toughest situations to face is the line of duty or other unexpected death of a responder. The administrative and logistical aspects are often overwhelming to those individuals and agencies that are ill prepared.

This interactive class has been designed to prepare Emergency Service providers, military personnel, school administrators, municipal officials as well as CISM teams who may need to address a Line of Duty Death, Suicide or other unexpected death.
