Our mission is to serve those who put themselves in harm's way.

Who We Are

The First Responder Task Force (FRTF) was created to serve those who put themselves in harm’s way— proudly serving Locals nationally. On 9/11, 414 First Responders were killed in the line of duty. The mass casualty of First Responders on that day shed light on the fine print buried in their insurance policies. These policies denied or delayed payments for exclusions such as “Acts of War”, “Acts of Terror,” Hazardous Duty,” and “Line of Duty”, the last two of which could effect First Responders every day. These exclusions impacted a devastating number of the victims’ families.

Far too many families are still struggling to receive benefits. This is where FRTF steps in, to do what’s right, providing exclusion-free survivor benefits specifically designed to protect First Responders and their families. It’s the one tragedy we CAN stop from ever happening again. The video below is of Jon Stewart’s address to Congress regarding their inaction with helping First Responders who served on 9/11. It’s a reminder of why we do what we do.

"A life of significance is about serving those who need your gifts, your leadership, your purpose."

Our Trusted Partner

For over a decade, we've been partnered with the Armed Forces Benefit Association (AFBA) — a non-profit member benefit association that was created in the basement of the Pentagon, and has covered our nation's Military since 1947. Through AFBA, this specialized coverage - once only accessible to Military personnel - was extended to First Responders after 9/11. This ultimately became the catalyst for our mission to serve those who put themselves in harm's way. We are their "boots on the ground" and exclusive distribution channel ensuring First Responders and their families have access to no exclusion, no restriction survivor benefits. The strength of our partnership comes from our joint unwavering commitment to provide peace, certainty, and security to those who deserve it most.
