We Remember Our 2019 Fallen First Responders




The Texas LODD Task Force honors our Texas fallen first responders from 2019. Each of these lives represents a community, an agency, and loved ones that have been left behind. We would also like to pay tribute to those first responders who have fallen due to cancer or suicide. We have been honored to serve many of these first responders' families after their loss. We have seen first hand the impact of their loss. Please take a moment and remember our fallen and those that continue to serve.
