FUNERAL

OPERATIONS SCHOOL

“Bravery is being scared to death and gearing up anyway."

~ Unknown

This classroom based curriculum is a stand alone school held in Milwaukee but seperately from the Milwaukee Honor Guard Clinic and will consist of PowerPoint and tabletop discussion and team based assignments.  Those who attend will learn to coordinate a Line of Duty Death (LODD) funeral from initial notification to interment.   


Examples of the curriculum include but are not limited to:


  • Family, department and media notification
  • Family, department and honor guard planning
  • Visitation, service and graveside planning
  • Staging, procession and route planning
  • Inter-agency cooperation to include clergy and funeral home personnel
  • Critical Incident and Peer Support 


Refreshments and lunch are included with the cost of this two day school.  At the end of the school each attendee will receive a t-shirt and certificate of completion.  If needed, shuttles will be provided for transportation between General Mitchell International Airport and the host hotel.


The cost for this school is:


If attending the school only:  $150.00

If attending both the school and the Milwaukee Honor Guard Clinic (cost for both):  $300.00

(Honor Guard Clinic is $250.00 so this would be $100 savings for taking both courses)
