Supporting Our Public Safety Officers and Firefighters
When tragedy strikes, the effects are swift and devastating. The 100 Club of Durango recognizes the need to respond immediately with support and understanding. Whatever the need – financial, advisory or moral support, the 100 Club of Durango is there to ease the pain of the family of those in fire, public safety or law enforcement who are injured or killed in the line-of-duty.
Being a member of the fire department is being part of a “Brotherhood” and “Sisterhood,” a family. There is a common conviction that exemplifies the highest standards of service. The team concept is what is found in the fire service: it’s the “Brotherhood” and “Sisterhood” that brings firefighters together in one common bond, as well as gives them a deep connection with members of the community they serve. One of the most rewarding parts of the fire service is saving a life; but not every emergency situation has a positive outcome; and in an industry that views death on a daily basis, firefighters often must depend on each other and the generosity of the community. The Hundred Club of Durango is such an organization united in a common interest and doctrine not unlike the fire service. The Hundred Club not only assists the surviving family members of fallen firefighters it provides the opportunity to children of firefighters in furthering their education at Fort Lewis College through The Hundred Club Scholarship Program.
