Please support us.

Together we can create safe workplaces for everyone.

Why support the John Petropoulos Memorial Fund? We protect those who protect you and are a voice for first responders. And, while our interest is in protecting emergency responders, our safety initiatives make conditions safer for everyone. Our public service announcements, social networking campaigns, safety videos and speaker presentations save lives and they could save the lives of your own workers – but we need your help.

All donations allow the JPMF to help spread this important safety message: when you make conditions safe for emergency responders, you make it safer for everyone. Help protect those who protect you.
