INTERNATIONAL PUBLIC SAFETY ASSOCIATION
Together we are stronger

2019 LODDs

First responders experience extreme physical demands, often in hazardous environments. Many tragedies occur suddenly and without warning. Gunshot wounds, building collapses, vehicular accidents, assaults and other causal factors contribute to untimely deaths in our emergency response community.

Further, first responders face several threats to occupational related diseases such as cancer and cardiorespiratory related maladies. Law enforcement, firefighting and rescue activities are inherently dangerous occupations.

This page serves as a dedication to the fallen, their families and loved ones, their agencies and to the entire first responder community.

It is meant to serve as a dedication to the fallen. It is dedicated to their families and loved ones who have suffered such terrible losses. It is dedicated to their agencies who lost colleagues, friends and confidants. Finally, this page is dedicated to the first responder community, who with the loss of every member: experience, expertise, contribution and camaraderie are also lost.


The IPSA recognizes there are no international definitions for what constitutes a line of duty death. There is also no international clearinghouse that captures all line of duty deaths. Given that we are an international organization, we will do our best to recogize fallen heroes as we learn about them.
