Line of Duty Death: Preparing the Best for the Worst Training

The Western Region Homeland Security Advisory Council (WRHSAC) in partnership with the Western Mass Emergency Medical Services Committee, Inc. (WMEMS) are hosting Line of Duty Death: Preparing the Best for the Worst Training. This training is facilitated by the International Critical Incident Stress Foundation (ICISF) and is part of their Certificate of Specialized Training Program.

One of the toughest situations to face is the Line of Duty Death (LODD). The administrative & logistical aspects of a LODD are often overwhelming to those agencies that are ill-prepared. This course will address many of those issues as well as give special attention to pre-incident planning and proper follow-up services.

This interactive class has been designed to prepare Emergency Service providers, Critical Incident Stress Management (CISM) Teams, school administrators, municipal officials and military personnel.

This is a two-day training, Wednesday and Thursday, November 13 & 14, 2019, 8:30 am to 4:30 pm. You must be able to attend both, full days of the training to receive credit.

The training is free and food will be provided. OEMS credits are pending.

The training location is Hadley Farms Meeting House, Hadley Massachusetts.

Members of the Western Massachusetts Critical Incident Stress Management Team (CISM) have first priority for registration to this training through Thursday, October 10, 2019. Registration will then be open to First Responder, Municipal, Military and School Administrator leadership in Western Massachusetts. (CISM members may still register after October 10, but seating will not be held specifically for them after that date). 

Please complete the form below to indicate your interest in attending the training. All will be placed on a waitlist. You will be notified by email of your registration status. Please indicate under “agency” if you are a member of Western Mass CISM
