Illinois Firefighter Line of Duty Deaths
Digital Image Collection Database

Derived from a memorial book compiled by IFSI Deputy Director David F. Clark, original funding for this project was awarded by the Illinois State Library (ISL), a Division of the Office of Secretary of State, using funds provided by the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS), under the federal Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA). The Illinois Library Association highlighted the IFLODD Database as an exemplary Illinois State Library grant award recipient in the ILA Reporter, and the database has also been recognized by the Scout Report and the Newberry Library Genealogy News.

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.
