Join the First Responders Foundation for our

Annual 9/11 Event of Honor Livestream, with Keynote Speaker Omaha Police Chief Todd Schmaderer

Public safety is the cornerstone of our mission, and it is our top priority to help ensure the health and safety of our first responders and our community. Therefore, the difficult decision was made to move the event from an in-person luncheon to a virtual event. The event will be attended by the Foundation Staff & Board, and those being honored. Your virtual participation is much appreciated, as is your support.

2020 represents the First Responders Foundation’s Fourth Annual 9/11 Event of Honor. This year we will be hosting a virtual event. You are invited to join the live stream on September 11th from 11:30 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. The event will begin with a minute of silence in remembrance of 9/11. Opening remarks will be made by our President & CEO, Al Batschlet, followed by the tradition of inductions into the Ancient Order of Saint Florian and Saint Michael.

This year we are honored to induct:
OPD Chief Todd Schmaderer
OFD Chief Dan Olsen
Dr. C.C. & Mabel Criss Foundation
Jim Hanson Jr.
Mary and Hal Daub

The event will continue with our keynote speaker, Omaha Police Chief Todd Schmaderer. We are proud to have Chief Schmaderer with us. He will share what life would be like without first responders and how first responders are impacting our community.

There is no charge to attend this virtual event. We do ask you to consider a donation to the Foundation, as this annual event is important to our fundraising, and is essential to continue the programming the Foundation offers to first responders and their families. 100% of the donations from this event will support key programs that focus on the physical and emotional wellbeing of our first responders and their families.

To participate in the livestream, visit our Facebook page during the scheduled event time, September 11, 11:30 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
