Is this being handled as a LODD death?"When you are safe at home, you wish you were having an adventure-when you're having an adventure, you wish you were safe at home"

I would think that it would be considered LODD. I may be wrong, but I believe we are covered from the time the pagers go off until we get back home afterwards.........
