Database of Illinois Firefighter Line of Duty Deaths

The Illinois Fire Service Institute has created a database of firefighters who died in the line of duty going back 150 years:

“IFLODD, the Illinois Firefighter Line of Duty Deaths Digital Image Collection Database, documents the ultimate sacrifice of more than 800 Illinois firefighters over the past 150 years. Providing access to this history memorializes the firefighters, increases awareness of their sacrifice, and supplies contemporary firefighters with valuable “lessons learned” from the various deaths.”

Some entries just have very basic information about the circumstances of the death, while others include photographs and oral history presented as audio and text.
