Washington Fire Chiefs Team Up with Lighthouse Uniform to Launch “With All Due Respect” for Support of Fallen Firefighters
Program will provide benefits to families and departments following duty deaths
Washington Fire Chiefs have joined Lighthouse Uniform Company to announce the formation of “With All Due Respect”, a program dedicated to providing support and resources in the wake of line-of-duty deaths.
This program recognizes the 'need it now' nature of firefighting tragedies and intends to bring together many of the country's State Fire Chief Associations, leading firefighting media companies and a number of top manufacturing companies – all capable, willing and committed to providing those items 'needed now'.
"Our 'With All Due Respect' LODD Resource Program is an attempt to fill the missing piece in the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation’s 'Taking Care of Our Own' Program’ - that of the manufacturing community being mobilized enough to provide immediate, overnight, service," said Steve Cohen, President of Lighthouse Uniform Company. "After identifying those incidental things often missing from a department's in-house inventory, we went looking for companies who could help meet these needs. It was quite gratifying to find people jumped at the chance to be involved."
The 'With All Due Respect' Program is available to any department needing it. Currently, departments and individuals may access the program through the Lighthouse Uniform Company web site at www.lighthouseuniform.com/LODDResourceProgram. This website can also be found on the Washington Fire chiefs website www.washingtonfirechiefs.com/. Eventually, the program will be accessible via links from various fire service organizations, including many State Chiefs Association web sites.
