About the Reserve
Early in 2020 President Mitch Weinstein had a vision for a fund dedicated to First Responders killed in the line of duty. After putting some thoughts together the Lakeland, Florida native drafted an email describing his ideas. Unbeknown to him that very same morning Police Officer Paul Dunn, a Marine Veteran and member of the Lakeland Police Department, was involved in an on-duty motorcycle accident and passed away from his injuries.
Unfortunately this is far too common in the First Responder and Military community. It is estimated that 250–300 are killed in the line of duty every single year.
Fallen First Reserve is a special fund that helps pay financial expenses related to the passing of a first responder. Your contribution helps honor the heroes who have made the ultimate sacrifice to keep the public safe. Our goal is to provide financial support in the amount of $5,000 immediately upon the passing of a first responder.
