Line of Duty Death Handbook

This handbook is written to assist any EMS agency who must handle a line of duty death. While every EMS agency is different and many may have their own traditions as it relates to these incidents, it is important to handle these tragic occurrences with dignity, respect, confidentiality and sensitivity. This handbook is not meant to be followed completely; rather use it as a reference in conjunction with your own internal protocols and traditions. Throughout this document “EMT” is used simply to represent all levels of EMS provider.
