The Craven County Firemen’s Association offers a one-time cash benefit to designated beneficiaries of Association members who are killed in the line of duty. Members of the Association are assessed $3.00 per person in the event of a member death and all members are eligible as long as any previous assessments are up to date. Even members who leave the Association may be covered by the benefit as long as they continued to pay any assessments to the Association after leaving.

The fund is designed to put instant cash into the hands of the survivors to help pay for immediate needs.

Upon notification of a line of duty death, the fund coordinator will obtain cash and present it to the Chief of the Department with whom the deceased member is affiliated.

Based on current membership, $2,000 is the amount to be presented.
