FPD Patch

Fifty Club in Fishers to Support FPD and FFD

November 7, 2017

Fishers, IN – Fishers Police Department and Fishers Fire Department would like to express our sincere appreciation to the Fishers Fifty Club, which was officially established June 27, 2017.

The primary goal of the Fifty Club is to raise funds to support the families of Fishers firefighters and police officers in the event of a catastrophic injury or line of duty death of an emergency responder.   These funds are raised through drives and events organized by the members of the club and dispersed to the family in a timely fashion for immediate needs.

Fire Chief Steve Orusa expressed his “gratitude for the generosity of these members of our community in the thoughtful, impactful approach to caring for our responder’s families.”
          
Police Chief Mitch Thompson added, “It is an honor to see our men and women’s professionalism and contribution recognized by our community and an avenue of relief for our responders knowing their family will be cared for in the event of their death in the performance of duties.”

Founding of this chapter of the Fifty Club is James Ratliff, Steven Lutz and Richard Block.  Having set the basis for this chapter, they are now accepting other business and philanthropic members of the community to join them as the founding donors of the organization.

The public is invited to attend a Mix and Mingle fundraising event on November 8 from 5:30pm to 7:30pm at Four Day Ray Brewing.  FDR is located at 11671 Lantern Rd.
There has been no line of duty police officer deaths in the history of Fishers Police Department and one line of duty Fishers firefighter death of Raymond “Bud” Moulder on October 13, 1967.  Bud left behind a wife and five children while saving the life of another firefighter as his last act in this world.
