As members of public safety, we are personally effected by the events of September 11, 2001. Thousands of Americans lost their lives or family members in the attacks on our country. In following with the traditions and honor of public safety, we wish to give back to those who have served their communities. Therefore, we do not charge a fee to play at funeral services for any public safety personnel, past, present, career or volunteer. Due to the rising cost of fuel we only ask for donations to cover our travel.
We do not charge a fee for ACTIVE military.
We do reserve the right to not charge for private funerals on a case by case basis.
