Honoring Our Heroes

As part of our commitment in honoring the Public Safety Community, Morris Family has created the Heroes of Public Safety Program for emergency service personnel.

This program provides dignified and honorable tributes, at no cost, for career and volunteer Public Servants who die in the line-of-duty.

Those who protect and serve our community have a special place in our hearts. Every day, they leave their homes and families to serve people they have never met, but are sworn to defend. When death occurs, funerals for public safety officers should reflect honor and respect for their service. This includes law enforcement officers, firefighters and emergency medical service workers. We believe we bring a special degree of sensitivity to a sad and tragic situation.

Policy Statement

We provide a metal casket, our professional services, memorial book, folders, thank-you notes and up to two limousines. We will charge only for the direct cash advances (such as a clergy honorarium) or enhancements requested by the family. As a further expression of our concern, we will also attempt to collect the Worker's Compensation Death Benefit, any other benefits applicable, and pay these funds as a donation to the closest next-of-kin.

Of equal or greater importance than the donation of our services is the professionalism and experience we bring to this situation. There is no more difficult funeral to organize and carry out. It requires a tremendous amount of planning and organization. We script the services and practice before the event so all involved are clear on their roles. Because viewing the deceased is so important to survivors, we employ a superior preparation staff. We are committed to doing whatever it takes to carry out a fitting final tribute.
