The Lieutenant Joseph P. DiBernardo Memorial Foundation was founded in 2012 as a not for profit 501.C.3 charitable organization to provide life safety training and personal safety ropes to firefighters and fire departments who do not have the financial means.
The Foundation achieves its mission by raising funds through seminars, fund raisers, and the generous support of its sponsors and individual donors.
Joseph P. DiBernardo was one of six firefighters that jumped from the 5th floor after being trapped by fire in a tenement building in the Bronx (NY) on January 23, 2005 while working as a firefighter in Rescue Company 3. DiBernardo survived that day, but later succumbed to his injuries.
They would ask that you consider sponsoring or being a vendor at their 3rd Annual seminar which is scheduled for May 29 & 30, 2015 at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Hauppauge Long Island (NY).
