About the Lt. Joseph P. DiBernardo Memorial Foundation
The Lt. Joseph P. DiBernardo Memorial Foundation is formed for the charitable purpose of providing financial aid to fire departments and members of fire departments in the United States and Canada who are in need of purchasing personal Life Safety Rope systems and attending educational training seminars on subjects related to firefighting life safety and who do not have the financial means to do so. The Foundation will achieve its purpose by raising funds by providing firefighting seminars, lectures, and through other fund raising activities.
