Timothy Schmuke wrote -On September 11th, 343 firefighters from the KC Metro Area will embark on a 110 story stair climb in remembrance of the firefighters lost during the 9/11 tragedy. We are asking for donations to help support the Surviving Spouse and Family Endowment (SAFE) Fund. SAFE currently fulfills its mission by providing an immediate lump sum payment to the nearest surviving family member(s) of full time and volunteer law enforcement officers, firefighters and emergency services personnel killed in the line of duty in the stated geographic area. Additional monetary benefits are available for deaths occurring "while on duty" but not "in the line of duty", as well as benefits for certain "catastrophic injuries", and family holiday contributions. In fulfilling its mission, SAFE receives and invests funds and endeavors to inform and educate the public on issues related to the sacrifices made by those involved in public safety and their families. This organization is not intended to benefit survivors of federal or state agencies, many of whom receive benefits through other programs. Any donation you could make on our behalf to this great organization would be greatly appreciated.
