Responder Rescue Inc. is a exciting non for profit organization founded to assist colleagues from area Fire and Police Departments along with EMS Workers who are coping with severe injuries, illnesses along with other financial needs when all other resources have been exhausted.
Responder Rescue is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that citizens can contribute to when asking themselves, "How can I help those individuals who have helped so many?". Responder Rescue's goal, over time, is to provide assistance to any Police Officer, Firefighter or EMS worker who serves our communities in the surrounding areas who have been injured, become ill or suffered a traumatic situation. Responder Rescue will provide assistance to our responders through fundraisers and donations given by our citizens, communities and local corporations when all other resources have been exhausted.
Firefighters from the St. Louis area established Responder Rescue in 2009. They have seen first-hand, during their careers, individuals who have been left financially and emotionally devastated after an unforeseen injury or illness. There is no way to prevent injuries or illnesses that strike individuals responding to emergencies. Many of our Police Officers, Firefighters and EMS workers have nowhere to turn for help and support.
100% of all donations to the BackStoppers are given directly to the organization.
