Firefighters across the U.S. and Canada are urged to show their fallen brothers & sisters - and their families - that they care by signing a Web-based Memorial Book to honor those lost in the line of duty.
By signing the Memorial Book at http://www.sperianfire.com, firefighters will help make a $100,000 donation by Sperian Fire possible to the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation and the Canadian Fallen Firefighters Foundation. The donation will be made by Sperian Fire in the names of the firefighters who have signed the Book.
"We're asking firefighters everywhere to visit the Memorial Book and to sign their names to show their support for this donation - in memory of those who have fallen and in support of the families they left behind," said Anne Chambers, Channel Manager for Sperian Fire.
"We're not asking for financial support, only for your emotional support and less than a minute of your time," she noted.
Book signers can also offer words of encouragement or remember individual fallen comrades.
Chief Ronald Siarnicki, Executive Director of the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation, said "This is a wonderful, thoughtful, and very much appreciated effort." He signed the Book in honor of "fallen friends who will always remain in my thoughts and prayers."
Captain Robert Kirkpatrick of Mississauga, Ontario, President of the Canadian Fallen Firefighters Foundation said "the donation is the largest the CFFF ever received. Each and every firefighter should sign the Memorial Book to show their support. And it will take less than a minute to show that support."
All firefighters are urged to visit http://www.sperianfire.com.
The donation is the largest charitable gift in Sperian Fire's history.
