Public Safety: Everyone’s Responsibility
In the wake of the tragic events of September 11, 2001,
public safety has taken on new dimensions. Even in the
face of growing threats and challenges, police and fire
professionals continue to respond with characteristic
heroism and selflessness. Unfortunately, some lose their
life in the line of duty.
It’s impossible to fill the void they leave in
society and in their families, but by supporting The BackStoppers,
you can express your appreciation in a tangible way for
a life given on behalf of others. By doing so, you can
help those they loved the most continue their legacy of
dedication to public safety.
