Shield 616 | www.shield616.org
Shield616 was formed with the street cop in mind. The goal of Shield616 is two-fold.
First, we want to equip every officer with necessary advanced active shooter/crowd control gear. Second, we want to provide a support group for that officer who will pray for the officer and family on a daily basis and shower the officer with support and encouragement throughout the year.
Come support while checking out the latest police displays and supporting those that have made the ultimate sacrifice supporting us and our families.

IAFF local 4369 Fountain Professional Firefighters
in support of Fire Fighters and First Responders | www.iaff.org
The IAFF is the driving force behind nearly every advance in the fire and emergency services in the 21st century. In 1986, the IAFF completed a permanent tribute to its members, the IAFF Fallen Fire Fighter Memorial, located in Colorado Springs, Colorado. The Memorial was founded to recognize and honor past and future professional fire fighters and emergency medical personnel who are killed in the line of duty and to provide assistance to the surviving spouses and children of those members. Each September, the IAFF conducts a solemn ceremonial service at the Fallen Fire Fighter Memorial and Wall of Honor to honor the sacrifice made by professional fire fighters and paramedics who have given their lives in the line of duty during the previous year.

Victory Service Dogs, in support of our U.S. service members and veterans | www.victorysd.org
Helping veterans achieve a full life of increased independence, purpose, and dignity through a partnership with a loving service companion.
Victory Service Dogs believes our U.S. service members and veterans deserve to live lives of independence and dignity. For those who struggle with the effects of PTSD and other physical or psychological challenges, achieving that desired quality of life can be difficult and frustrating.
Research has consistently proven that the bond between humans and canines is very powerful. Service dogs can greatly improve the quality of everyday life for individuals with disabilities. They enable veterans and active duty service members to cope with symptoms of PTSD, gain improved mobility, and provide a sense of well-being.
