Featured Resource and Training: Funeral Procedures for Firefighters

We tragically lose firefighters in the line of duty each year. 107 line-of-duty deaths are being honored at this year’s National Fallen Firefighters Memorial Weekend, 98 of which occurred in 2013. It is only fitting that these heroic men and women be given the final respect they deserve. In response to numerous requests about how to properly conduct a firefighter funeral service, the NVFC developed the guide Funeral Procedures for Firefighters. A companion brochure, Personal Information Sheet template, and Navigating Fire Service Funerals online course are also available. Access these resources.
