The Nebraska Serious Injury & Line-of-Duty Death Response Team is a resource team that makes themselves available to departments who have been stricken with a serious injury or loss. Team members are trained in many aspects. One of the main focuses our group takes is in relationship to a Line of Duty loss.
In the case of a LODD, there are many necessary notifications on a Federal and State level that are required to be made. Team members are trained to assist departments with the proper notifications, as well as the Federal paperwork process.
Several team members serve as coordinators to the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation and the Department of Justice, and have received additional training on proper procedures and filing of federal benefit paperwork. This relationship facilitates ongoing training necessary to be proficient when dealing with Line of Duty Deaths, and allows for a prompt response to the families and agencies suffering a loss.
