What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

We are working towards honoring those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice in the line of duty. When a first responder is killed in the line of duty, the fellow comrades are often expected to just move on and continue the next day. There is not much done for them after one of their fellow partners has fallen. Unfortunately it will never end and fellow comrades are left with a void. This void needs to be filled as much as possible so that they can continue to serve their communities while still remembering their fallen comrades.

Honoring the Fallen

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

We construct custom wood honor chairs to be placed at agencies of first responders killed in the line of duty. We donate the chairs to the agency as a way to save the place of the first responder who paid the ultimate sacrifice in the performance of their duties. Often times fellow first responders must move on and nothing is done within the agency to remember their sacrifice. Placing an honor chair at the roll call or briefing room, saves the place where the first responder once sat among their fellow comrades. We want to make sure their memory never fades and their legacy lives on. We hope to help fill that empty void that is left when they are no longer sitting amongst their fellow comrades.

We build the wood honor chairs specifically for the fallen first responder. We allow the agency to provide us with information that is specific to their first responder. This allows the chairs to be custom made and represent the fallen hero as best they can. We personally deliver each chair so that we can meet those who worked side-by-side with the one we are honoring and show them that the first responder community across the nation is there for them.

We currently have 5 hands on chair builders made up of our members, volunteers, and staff. They are equipped to fully complete an honor chair or prepare them to be completed. Together we are able to work on multiple honor chairs at one time.

We have presented over 100 honors chairs to agencies across the nation since 2013. We plan on adding more honor chair builders by purchasing the necessary equipment to allow them to fully construct a chair. We have also began offering scholarships to children of first responders. Our goal is to soon be able to present 80+ honor chairs per year.
