Contribution to fund programs that honor fallen heroes and support survivors
National Fallen Firefighters Foundation
EAGLEVILLE, Pa. - Streamlight, Inc., a leading manufacturer of professional flashlights for the fire market, once again is helping to honor fallen firefighters and their survivors through its "Bronze Helmet" sponsorship of the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation (NFFF). The non-profit organization celebrates the lives of firefighters who have died in the line of duty, and assists their families and co-workers.
Streamlight's contribution will be used to fund various National Fallen Firefighters initiatives, including the organization's annual memorial tribute to fallen heroes, scholarships awarded to spouses and children of fallen firefighters, and counseling programs for agencies who have lost colleagues in the line of duty.
"To be a firefighter is to commit to saving the lives of victims while putting one's own life at risk," said Streamlight President and CEO Brad Penney. "Streamlight is deeply honored to help the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation commemorate the lives of the brave men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice so that others might live."
Congress created the NFFF to lead a nationwide effort to honor America's fallen firefighters. Since 1992, the non-profit Foundation has developed and expanded programs that fulfill that mandate. For more information about the organization, visit www.firehero.org or call 301-447-1365.
