*Maintain current personnel and beneficiary records.

Taking Care of Our Own® provides senior fire officers with specific information and valuable insights needed to improve the department’s ability to respond to a line-of-duty death of one of their members. Presented in five modules, this course covers critical topics such as pre-incident planning, notification, benefits, and supporting the department and family after a line-of duty death.
