Free ServicesDespite the dangerous nature of their professions, many first responders have no will or health care directive in place. The Wills for Heroes® Foundation provides free wills, living wills, and powers of attorney to first responders. The project operates in a number of states, customized to each state’s legal requirements.
After the tragic events of September 11, 2001, the Wills for Heroes Foundation was founded as a means to provide pro bono estate planning services to firefighters, police officers, paramedics and other emergency first responders who risk their lives every day to keep us safe in our local communities.
How it WorksGenerally, emergency first responders complete an estate planning questionnaire prior to arriving at a Wills for Heroes event. Once on site, participants are assigned to a volunteer attorney licensed in that state who examines the questionnaire and inputs the information into a laptop preloaded with the appropriate software. The result includes a basic will, formally signed and finalized by a notary, before the participant leaves the site. All services are provided free of charge.
This is a great resource for firefighters, and Firematic is glad to promote it through our website.
