The Missouri EMS Memorial Foundation and the Missouri EMS Memorial was established with one purpose; honoring the memory of Missouri Emergency Medical Services individuals who gave their lives in the line of duty. We are dedicated to providing a permanent home where individuals, families, and organizations can go to reflect and remember their loved ones who gave that ultimate sacrifice.
Missouri Fire Funeral Assistance Team
In March of 2008, The Missouri Law Enforcement Funeral Assistance Team was founded as a resource to assist departments and families upon the death of an Officer. The primary focus is on line of duty deaths, but the Team will also assist with funerals for retired Officers and for active duty Officers who pass away from non-duty related injury or illness. Our goal is to insure that fallen Officers are laid to rest with the highest level of dignity and honor. Additionally, we will work to coordinate resources to directly support the agency and family such a for chaplain services, mental health support, and assistance in obtaining financial support available to the family, including the Federal Public Safety Officer Benefit.
The National Emergency Medical Services Memorial Foundation is a 501 c3 charitable organization. The sole purpose of this foundation is to establish a permanent EMS memorial in Washington DC or its environs to honor, recognize and remember the commitment, service and sacrifice of the Nationís EMS heroes who have died in the line of duty and for those who continue this service commitment and sacrifice.
NEMSMF was spearheaded by dedicated EMS providers from Boston, New York, Pittsburgh, Delaware, Cleveland and Detroit. Each of these locations could provide a suitable memorial and would be proud to do so. It was understood by all however, that the prestige of the Nationís capital make it the most appropriate home for the National Memorial. Since its inception, the Foundation has grown exponentially and now enjoys personal and corporate support from coast to coast.
While public safety officers from law enforcement and the fire service have been recognized for their sacrifice with national memorials, the men and women of EMS have gone without recognition for too long. It is our mandate to finally give these silent heroes a fitting memorial and their loved ones, co-workers, and counterpartís, a permanent place to remember those we have lost, ďthat others might liveĒ.
The purpose of the National EMS Memorial Service is to remember and honor those emergency medical services personnel who have died in the line of duty and to recognize the ultimate sacrifice they have made for their fellow man.
Shield 24/7 is a non-profit organization of private individuals and business people dedicated to providing physical, mental, emotional and financial support to families of emergency service personnel who have died in the line of duty protecting us.
Station House Retreat is a treatment facility in south Florida exclusively for first responders.
Clinicians and support staff consist of current or former first responders, some of whom are in recovery or living life to the fullest with their post traumatic stress. We offer small group settings for our 12-Step recovery program as well as mental health therapy including a trauma treatment curriculum, which provides the skills necessary to cope with the devastating, and often unrealized, effects of PTSD. At the end of treatment, each client will be partnered with a first responder mentor to help them transition back into family and career life, for as long as they may need.
Station House is currently licensed to accept first responders with addiction issues only. Within the next month or so, we will be licensed to also treat mental health issues including PTSD. (02-03-15)
Our mission is to honor the service and sacrifice of public safety heroes who give their lives in the line of duty - by caring for the loved ones they leave behind.
