The Phoenix Fire Foundation Tribute Truck is a restored fire engine dedicated for use as a funeral caisson to carry deceased brother and sister fire fighters to their final resting place. While for most active duty and line of duty deaths, the deceased’s assigned fire apparatus will continue to be used for this purpose, the PFF Tribute Truck will be available – free of charge – to any family of a deceased fire fighter in need of funeral transportation.
When not being used for funerals, the Tribute Truck would be available for apparatus displays, community events, parades and fundraisers.
Work to restore the truck is being performed by volunteer retirees and active firefighters from around the Valley. In addition, local area businesses are donating their time, materials and shop areas for the length of the restoration.
Still, we have need of additional help to complete this project. The Foundation is seeking sponsors to fund different stages of the “make-ready” process and to fund continued sponsorships for the ongoing use of the truck. Major sponsors will have their logo or their name on the truck in appreciation.
Your tax-deductible donation will be to the Phoenix Fire Foundation, a non-profit organization. To make a donation, please contact Doug Mummert at firstname.lastname@example.org.
