BENEFITING: Kansas City Metropolitan Crime Commission Inc.
September 11th marks the anniversary of a day that most of us promised to never forget. Join us as firefighters from Kansas City region and beyond are supported by members of the community, coming together for a day of extreme physical challenge and intense reflection in a truly inspirational setting. Together we will honor New York's Bravest and Finest who sacrificed their lives on September 11, 2001 as well as supporting the families who have suffered a LODD in the Kansas City Metro Area. SAFE currently fulfills its mission by providing an immediate lump sum payment to the nearest surviving family member(s) of full time and volunteer law enforcement officers, firefighters and emergency services personnel killed in the line of duty in the stated geographic area. Additional monetary benefits are available for deaths occurring "while on duty" but not "in the line of duty", as well as benefits for certain "catastrophic injuries", and family holiday contributions. In fulfilling its mission, SAFE receives and invests funds and endeavors to inform and educate the public on issues related to the sacrifices made by those involved in public safety and their families. This organization is not intended to benefit survivors of federal or state agencies, many of whom receive benefits through other programs.
