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.
These campaigns have almost reached their goal. Join in to help them get there.
We are the Cardwell Fire Department, a self-funded volunteer fire department in a small town of about 700 residents. We cover about 40 square miles. Our department funding comes from firefighters fundraising with a little help from the city, which does not have much funding. We are raising funds for new equipment due to the fact that most of our equipment is well out of date. Our main goal is to build a new fire shed so our trucks will not be exposed to the elements.
The last interaction I had with my son before his passing was me closing his eyes and promising him that I would protect his family. Unfortunately, the past four years have been extremely difficult for my daughter-in-law Tammy and her children due to the financial hardships that they are incurring. In November after 17 hearings, the judge of the NJ Workmen's Compensation Court awarded Tammy full compensation for Scott's line-of-duty-death. The insurer has appealed and the appeal is being delayed by COVID-19. Any funds raised for this campaign will be to support Tammy's family who is currently in debt for over $70,000 due to the untimely passing of her husband. E.

Please donate to help with end of life expenses for a fellow veteran and family member. My brother made an impact on many, and was loved by all. Early Wednesday morning we received a call of my brother's sudden and untimely passing due to heart complications. Marc was only 44 years old and loved by so many. His passing has rocked all of our worlds as he was such an amazing person. Marc is survived by his significant other Jacquelene, his two daughters Almira and Yazmine, his sister Terri, and his mother Debra. Please find it in your hearts to help support such a beautiful and wonderful man. Every little bit helps.
