Bereavement Uniform Program
‘Taking Care of Those Who took Care of Us’ ™
After fifteen years, the Lighthouse Uniform Company’s Fallen Fire Fighter Dress Uniform Program has dropped the LODD requirement and is making a dress uniform for burial purposes available to any family needing one. We call this new program the Bereavement Uniform.
It is a collaborative effort between the Fire Service and the Lighthouse Uniform Company. It calls for departments and firefighters to check their ‘closets’ for dress uniforms ‘surplused’ or no longer fitting and to send them in to the Lighthouse.
The Lighthouse cleans, refurbishes, reconfigures to rank and makes them available to any family requesting one for burial purposes, at ‘no cost’ to the family. The only charge is for freight which will be billed to the affiliated department.
For more information, to join the National Volunteer Fire Council, the Federation of Fire Chaplains, and numerous departments already involved, or to engage the program, to donate or to receive, call us at 800-426-5225 (Seattle time).
Very best regards,
Steve Cohen, Pres.
