LPES partners with EMSFR

Lyndhurst Police Emergency Squad (LPES) is proud to announce its partnership with Emergency Medical Services Family Resources (EMSFR) —a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting the families of emergency medical technicians (EMTs) and paramedics who have suffered from a catastrophic illness, injury or death.

LPES has decided to support EMSFR to protect its volunteer members and also to help other EMTs and Paramedics throughout the country. “EMSFR is much like the Police Benevolent Association and the Firemen’s Mutual Benevolent Association.” Said Tarcisio Nunes, captain of the LPES. “Everyday thousands of selfless individuals provide emergency medical services, often in extremely dangerous situations.  EMSFR is the only organization that provides support to the families of these emergency responders.”

The organization was started in October of 2011 Lynn Davis of Las Vegas, NV after her son Justin Conklin of Elizabeth NJ suffered a massive heart attack.  The family, had trouble finding an organization to aid them while Conklin was in the hospital.  Davis created the organization to help emergency responders like Conklin to be prepared and able to support their families in case of a medical emergency or death.
