Review for RESPONDER RESCUE , Wentzville, MO, USA
Responder Rescue is a 501 C (3) not for profit organization that supports police, fire and other first responders who are injured while performing their assigned duties in the Greater St. Louis area. When a first responder is injured in the line of duty, their public agency insurance covers most of their medical expense, but all too often there are copays and other expenses that drain savings. Responder Rescue supports these first responder financially by paying monthly bills and assisting with some of the medical expenses. The organization's staff are all volunteers from the public and private sector. Each volunteer averages over 75 hours a year in supporting fundraiser to help meet the demands for assist by these injured public service personnel. In the organizations first year, it gave out over $40,000 in support and the second year already has more than $60,000 in requests for assistance.
