Responser Rescue came to the rescue of my family. My husband is a retired firefighter with Stage IV colon cancer related to his fire service. When our resources ran out they were there to help. This organization is there to support first responders when they are at their most vulnerable. Because of Responder Rescue we were able to get back on our feet and start to move forward. They gave us hope when we felt there wasn't much left. As far as I am concerned Responder Rescue is deserving of all our support!

Responder Rescue is there for those who help others every day. If a first responder is no longer able to work due to illness, injury or other traumatic experience , and has used all other resources, Responder Rescue can help them. I started volunteering with the charity just over a year ago, and can tell you the charity truly cares and wants to help this first responders. The charity puts on many fundraising events throughout the year to help raise money. Grants are also going to be submitted to help meet the needs. Responder Rescue really cares for those who are there for us everyday .

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.
