Delaware County LODD Memorial

Wills for Heroes Program on May 3rd 2014 at Station 48

Monday, March 10, 2014  The Delaware County Fallen Firefighter & EMS Memorial Committee will host 2014's Wills for Heroes Program on May 3rd 2014 at the Tinicum Township Fire Company, 99 Wanamaker Avenue, Essington, PA 19029. Please see the log in information below to schedule an appointment. Delaware County Fallen Firefighter & EMS Memorial In partnership with the Pennsylvania Bar Association Young Lawyers Division and with sponsorship by Ballard Spahr LLP and the Delaware County Fallen Firefighters & EMS Memorial Committee, we are proud to bring the Wills for Heroes program to you. Wills for Heroes is a free and easy service that provides Wills, Living Wills, Health Care and Financial Powers of Attorney to first responders and their spouses/partners. If you die without a Will, Pennsylvania’s intestate laws will determine who will receive your property. Undoubtedly, your loved ones’ grief will be overwhelming; a clear expression of your intent, desires, and wishes may help ease some of this inevitable burden. While nobody likes to think about an untimely death, it is best that you express your wishes through a written document. For your family’s peace of mind, please consider this invaluable opportunity, offered completely free to you and your spouse/partner. On May 3, 2014, volunteer lawyers will be conducting a Wills for Heroes Program for all Delaware County First Responders, all sworn personnel and their spouses or significant others. The May 3rd event will be held at the Tinicum Township Fire Company, 99 Wanamaker Avenue, Essington, PA 19029. Appointments for each person last approximately 1 hour and at the conclusion of it you will have notarized legal documents – a Will, Living Will, and Health Care and Financial Powers of Attorney (or any combination thereof). If you select you are coming with a spouse/significant other you will have back to back appointments, and the computer will automatically schedule a second appointment. You do not need to schedule a separate appointment. Please schedule your appointment early as this event is sure to fill up fast. Appointments must be scheduled online at www.pabar.org/wfh/ The password is: DELCO If you have any questions about the program please contact Gail Copeland at copeland@ballardspahr.com or Carolyn Capobianco capobianco@ballardspahr.com. For more information on the program visit the Wills for Heroes Foundation at www.willsforheroes.org. ** If your estate exceeds approximately $750,000, this service is unavailable to you due to the complexity of your estate and the limited time to complete the legal documents. For determining if your estate is over $750,000, include your cash, personal property, stock and bonds, real estate equity, savings, cash value of a whole/universal life insurance policy only (not the amount of the insurance policy). PLEASE MAKE SURE THAT YOU ARE AVAILABLE ON THE WILLS DAY FOR YOUR APPOINTMENT. INDIVIDUALS ARE VOLUNTEERING THEIR TIME FOR THIS PROGRAM. NO-SHOWS ARE STRONGLY DISCOURAGED!! You can email us or post any questions here and we will get back to you with an answer. This is again at no cost to you! — at Tinicum Township Fire Company.

Holiday Letter

Monday, December 2, 2013  Happy Holidays!

With the Holidays quickly approaching and only a few short weeks between Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Christmas and New Year’s we would like to remind you of some upcoming events and items available that support the Delaware County Fallen Firefighter & EMS Memorial.

- First, Christmas with the Guard: The Delaware County Fallen Firefighter & EMS Memorial’s Honor Guard will be standing watch over the Memorial while we welcome Family, Friends, and the Public to visit on Sunday, December 8th from 5 P.M. to 9 P.M. *Rain Date Sunday, December 15th from 5 P.M. to 9 P.M.
This will be the 3rd year for the event that has been widely attended by growing numbers each year. Come walk through the lit Christmas Trees and Holiday Display put on by Delaware County in the front of Rose Tree Park, then walk back past the gazebo and watch the somber display as the Honor Guard stand watch in the Fire & EMS Memorial. Inclement weather will cause us to move to December 15th and will be announced on our web site at www.DelcoLODD.com and our Facebook pages that day.

- 48’s Social Event Donation: The Memorial Committee would like to thank all those who attended the recent social event hosted by the members of Station 48, the Tinicum Fire Department. A very generous donation of $1023.00 was received! We humbly thank you for the donation and for thinking of the Delaware County Fallen Firefighter & EMS Memorial.

- Wills for Heroes: The Memorial Committee will be hosting two “Wills for Heroes” events so far in 2014. The first will be in May 3rd 2014 and the second on October 17th 2014. We are trying to make it easy on the “Wills for Heroes” crew by using a location that is best for them, yet easily to get to in the county for you. So far we have hosted 7 events, helping several hundred Fire, EMS, and Police members and their immediate families obtain the necessary and important legal documents. More info on this will follow…

- Delaware County Fallen Heroes Annual Ice Hockey Tournament: “Delaware County Fallen Heroes Cup” is set for January 18th at 3:45 P.M. in Rink 3 at “Ice Works” in Aston, PA. This year is going to be Police vs. Fire. There will be prize raffles, a 50/50 drawing and drink/food specials. If you would like to play in the game please email delcoheroscup@gmail.com with your name, phone number, skill level (a,b,c), and how you are affiliated with emergency services. If you would like to help in setting up or a donation, please email your contact info.

- Fundraiser: The Delaware County Fallen Firefighter & EMS Memorial Committee will be holding a Fundraiser in mid to late spring 2014. The Fundraiser will be held to help off-set some of the expenses for the up-keep of the Memorial at Rose Tree Park, Outfit and Supply the Honor Guard with Uniforms and Equipment, and to help us continue our primary goal which is to provide assistance to severely injured Fire & EMS personnel or the families of those who pay with their lives. Please stay tuned and keep an eye out for more information.

- Support: You can still help the Delaware County Fallen Firefighter & EMS Memorial and the Committee’s goals by purchasing Tee Shirts ($15), Pennsylvania Specialty License Plates ($50), and soon Memorial Bricks. The shirts and plates make great gifts, and help the memorial with your donation! The Tee Shirts cost $15 and are of high quality with the entire list of all 65 members that have paid with their lives protecting or serving Delaware County. The PA State License Plates are actual vehicle registration plates that replace the current tag on your car and display your support of the Memorial. The Specialty Plates are $50, part of which is a donation to the Memorial and are very popular. Memorial Bricks will available for purchase again in 2014 as the Memorial Committee intends on selling out the remaining blank spaces at the Memorial and use the opportunity to reseal the new and existing pavers once and for all. Please see the www.DELCOLODD.com site or the Facebook Pages for instructions or contact information.

The Delaware County Fallen Firefighter & EMS Memorial Committee continues to seek what is best for the Fire & EMS Personnel in DELCO, that each and every one of you are taken care of and that if the worst may happen we will make sure that your loved ones have what they need and are cared for…
