Fire Hero Family Events Through the End of Summer Cancelled

Fire Hero Family Events Through the End of Summer Cancelled


During this unsettling time, for all of our safety, especially those working on the front lines, we have made the difficult decision to cancel in-person Fire Hero Family events through the end of summer.

Many of you have told us how attending a family event has been helpful to you, that connecting with others who truly understand what it means to lose a firefighter in the line of duty provides you strength. We are humbled and inspired to witness the strength of the community you have created and your compassion for one another.

This is a difficult season, and we are relying on that strength that you have built over many years. We are here for you and looking for alternate ways to bring you together, as well as how to get new family members connected with the Fire Hero Family community for support. First, we need you to tell us what you need! Please take this quick survey so we can concentrate on priority items first.

Remember how much you have survived and overcome already. Keep in touch with us and with one another. We are all in this together, and no one has to do this alone.

Stay safe and be well.


Beverly Donlon, Director of Family Programs
and the entire Family Programs Team
