I know many of you are out there risking your lives, to save other lives, during this catastrophe that is going on. Please be careful out there, as the number one life you want to save is your own. Without your life, you can't save another.
As some of us are approaching being away from our families for 48 hours, it is important to thank all the spouses who are holding down the fort while we are gone.
In the case where both parents are officers, thank every to the grandmother, grandfather, aunt, uncle, brother, sister etc, that has answered the call to help officers. Without our support system we would be unable to protect our community. From the bottom of all of our hearts, THANK YOU!
As some of y'all know, the FOP has a natural disaster fund that every FOP member is always asked to donate into. That's how the funds are generated. Financial assistance will be made available on a case by case basis. Please videotape your whole house inside and out, before and after the flood damage. They'll have 90 days to file a claim with FOP. Get with any board member for the claim form.
