In October we highlighted Omaha Fire and Police in action! We had demonstrations from the Dive Team, Hazmat, Swat, Jaws of Life, Horse Patrol, and the K-9 Unit plus a photo station for the kids with police officers and firefighters.
To honor the first responders and civilians who died on September 11, 2001 and current first responders, we held our first annual “Minute of Silence” at 9:11 a.m. on 9/11/14. The ceremony was held at Memorial Park. We invite everyone to join us next year, and every year thereafter for this moment of silent respect.
Our first annual Memorial Benefit was held at the Omaha Police Mounted Patrol Barn. We honored our first responders and held a silent and live auction to raise money for the Omaha Police and Fire Departments. We invite you to join us next year, and every year thereafter for this great event and fun-filled evening. Next year the Benefit will be held on Thursday, September 17th. Save The Date!
These brave men and women are the first people on the scene when an emergency strikes. While everyone else is running away, first responders are running toward dangerous and sometimes fatal situations because they have taken an oath to protect us.
Our mission at the First Responders Foundation is to enhance public safety in our community by providing police officers and firefighters with vital resources they need to do their job.
We are the only foundation in Omaha that focuses on both police and firefighters, and we are the only foundation that focuses on providing first responders with material support such as rescue boats and other vital equipment. We partner directly with Omaha’s first responders to provide meaningful resources that make a direct positive impact on the community.
Get involved by considering a donation or volunteering to help.
