Fallen First Reserve is a special fund that helps pay financial expenses related to the passing of a first responder. Your contribution helps honor the heroes who have made the ultimate sacrifice to keep the public safe. Our goal is to provide financial support in the amount of $5,000 immediately upon the passing of a first responder. The average amount of first responders that unfortunately pass away in the line of duty each year is 300. Click here to view the current line of duty death list.
Who Help Us
These campaigns have almost reached their goal. Join in to help them get there.
With permission of Mike's wife, Lisa, this campaign is being held to raise money for the medical and family expenses that Mike's family is currently going through. All money raised will be given directly to the Geraldi Family. Mike Geraldi is known by everyone as Mikey G. He has a “larger than life” type of personality that can instantly make you laugh with one of his million silly antics. He is a son, brother, husband, and father of two young children. He is adored by his friends and is the life of the party. Married to his best friend, Lisa, there is never a dull moment in the Geraldi house. He is the type of dad that other kids wish they had. He always makes time for them and makes them his priority. Taking family trips or going out to eat, you could always count on everyone having a great time because Mikey makes sure of it. With 17 years on the job as an NYPD Police Officer assigned to PSA 4 in Manhattan, Mikey never lost his love to protect and serve. While his family always came first, his job was a close second. But, he also has a huge love of cars and is the president of one of the largest mustang car clubs on Long Island. “Strong Island Stangs” was founded by Mikey and has over 2,000 members. He truly loves using his platform to get the thousands of other car enthusiasts together for his many car shows. He’s worked so hard over the years to sponsor charities and coordinate events to help put smiles on everyone else’s face. He never hesitates to jump into action to show support for anyone in their time of need. He always makes sure to do the right thing by everyone. You can always count on Mikey to make you laugh. Whether it is one of his famous weather reports or his stellar dancing skills, all you need to do is look for Mikey in a room and his instant smile is always there. Please share and support the Geraldi Family during their time of need.
As a retired police officer, I know from experience all of the traumatic events we are a part of and witness everyday on the job. Unfortunately, those traumatic incidents stay with us and eventually bother us more than we think. I know we put those bad times in a box but we can only put so much in that box before it overflows. By managing the stress and trauma we are a part of while on the job not only helps us continue to serve our communities, it doesn't put additional stress on our families. I am currently working with a company that will help build a program/app that first responders can access via phone, iPad or computer. You will immediately be connected to a mental health professional/family counselor that you can reach by text, phone and/or video chat. I am aware that departments have physiologists who work for them and made available to first responders. The issue with this is those doctors work for the departments and ultimately report to the department/chain of command who visits the physiologists and for what reason. If those reasons are critical, you can be deemed unfit for duty. I truly believe this is why my fellow first responders don't seek the vital treatment they need. My program allows all first responders to seek that needed treatment with anonymity. You are being seen/treated by a third party mental health professional that has only your best interests in mind and don't answer to the departments. After treatment is sought, I will receive an invoice stating one person from X department is seeking mental health treatment as a result of work place trauma. You are safe to talk out issues, the treatment is only between you and the mental health professional. Let's prevent any more first responders from taking their own life. Please help me reach the monetary goal to get this program started for every first responder in the US. Thank you, -Floyd C. Albuquerque Police Officer (Ret) US Army (Ret) Please donate at:
