Supporting First Responders

First Responders endure incredibly difficult obstacles in the line of duty. We provide assistance for First Responders at all points in their journey, including  individuals who may be just be starting out, to veteran First Responders. NERO focuses on three main areas of the First Responders journey:

Assistance to First Responders in the line of duty.

First Responder scholarship opportunities

Event support and volunteerism

Heroes need a helping hand, too

You can support the individuals who put their lives on the line every day for us through a number of publicly transparent campaigns, so you can see directly where your funds go. From frontline support in the line of duty to behind the scenes assistance for individuals, we can provide First Responders with the thanks that they deserve.
