It is the Mission of the Nebraska Response Team to provide recommendations to help a department distinguish the type of honors which should be rendered for a Line-of Duty Death (LODD) versus honoring a member who died while active or inactive, but did not die from a job-related injury. Response Team members help the impacted department plan an appropriate ceremony.
In addition to guidelines and procedures, Nebraska Response Team members can identify resources for the department and the family. The Response Team will assist the affected department in working with the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation, notifying State and Federal agencies, securing family/spouse assistance, and where appropriate, helping the department in working with any national and state professional societies and/or labor management organizations.
