The Bereavement Uniform Program Needs Your Help!

The Bereavement Uniform Program is up, running and available to any firefighter family wanting it and the time has come to put out the call to the ‘have’ departments to check the ‘closets’ and send to the Lighthouse their surplus and no longer being used dress uniforms. To those associations that have 'linked up' and to those departments and individuals who’ve donated and made it on to the BUP’s ‘Be Remembered’ Wall of Fame, thank you very much.  The program wouldn’t work without you. For those unfamiliar with the Bereavement Uniform Program.  The BUP is a joint effort between the Lighthouse Uniform Company and America’s Fire Service to make available a Class A Dress Uniform for burial purposes to any family wanting one, at no cost to the family.  The program makes no distinction between paid and volunteer, active or retired and is up, running and available in all fifty states. The Bereavement Uniform Program now finds itself, much like the rest of the fire service community, in a precarious moment.  Its viability is tied directly to its ability to maintain an adequate supply of donated dress uniforms, so please, if you or your department have any surplus or no longer used dress uniforms, send them in.  We will clean, refurbish, and reconfigure them to meet the need of the request.
