“On August 13, 2016, my home was hit by lightning as a violent storm rolled through our neighborhood. Within minutes, my wife and I realized that the attic was fully involved in fire. Trooper Stephen Johnstone, Troop F PBA Delegate, was one of the first firefighters to respond with the Liberty Fire Department. After extinguishing the fire, he assured me that he would be making a request to the Signal 30 Benefit Fund, seeking disbursement to assist us with our needs. I cannot begin to explain how much these actions helped us during a traumatic time. I have always been proud to be a member of the New York State Police and appreciated the many friendships built over the years. For the past 3 weeks, my telephone has continued to ring with calls of concerns and offers to help, from fellow members of the PBA. I want to let you know that I greatly appreciate the most generous assistance you and the Signal 30 Benefit Fund have provided as it has made our ability to move forward so much easier.”

“We cannot express how thankful we are for the support of our PBA during this difficult time in our lives. The generosity and the support of the PBA has made this endeavor easier to bare. Piper’s rare heart condition will continue to have ups and downs over the next few years but with such an amazing source of encouragement we push on! Signal 30 Fund is such a vital part and I never knew it until now. Thank you again for the generous gift towards Piper’s medical care.”
