Resources for Families of Fallen Firefighters


Families of fallen firefighters face a long and difficult journey. While the rest of the world moves on, family members must figure out how to live without their loved one. The Foundation offers a variety of programs and materials to help during this most difficult time.

Most importantly, we want you to know that you are not alone. There are others who understand your loss and honor your loved one's memory.

Fire Service Survivor Programs
» Resources for Newly Bereaved Families of Fallen Firefighters - We want you to know that you are not alone. Though each person's loss is different, there are many survivors who have walked a similar path.
» Fire Service Survivors Network - Through the Network, Survivors can communicate with one another by email or phone. Connecting with someone else who has lost a beloved firefighter can offer a sense of hope and understanding.
» Remembrance Program - During the anniversary month of their firefighter's death, families receive a Remembrance card written by another survivor.
» Fire Service Survivors Conference - This special week of activities is designed to address issues related to loss, provide training for those providing outreach to others, and provide a chance to network with other survivors.
» Hal Bruno Camps for Children of Fallen Firefighters - This is a weekend bereavement camp for children and stepchildren of fallen firefighters who have been honored at the National Fallen Firefighters Memorial in Emmitsburg.
» Memorial Weekend - Every October, the Foundation sponsors the official national tribute to all firefighters who died in the line of duty during the previous year. The weekend features private activities for survivors and co-workers, along with public ceremonies.
Survivor Benefit Information
