Welcome to NSFLODD

The goal of the Nova Scotia Firefighters Line of Duty Deaths website is to help prevent future firefighter deaths and injuries by giving firefighters information about how their predecessors died, and the circumstances involved in their deaths. Education, safety, good health and a clear understanding of past problems are the keys to keeping firefighters alive and safe in this most dangerous profession.

We would ask that instead of to just copy the information and claim it as yours, you mention us and preferrably put a link to our site. Alternatively, you can look at our sources and do your own research.
