#HELPFIRST FOR FIRST RESPONDERS
Bio-One Donates First Aid Kits in Recognition of National Police Week
Northern Nevada (May 13, 2021) – In recognition of National Police Week, May 9-15, Bio-One thanked first responders by donating first aid kits to the Sparks and Reno Police Departments, the Washoe County Sheriff’s Office, and the Nevada Highway Patrol as part of the nationwide campaign #HelpFirst for First Responders. Throughout the week, Bio-One offices in 41 states distributed a cumulative 5,000 first aid kits, which included alcohol swabs, Advil, gloves, gauze pads, and an assortment of bandages.
The #HelpFirst campaign aligns with the Bio-One motto, Help First, Business Second, and will be used to help officers and community members in the event of a minor medical emergency.
“Bio-One prides themselves in supporting local law enforcement by providing prompt and professional crime and trauma scene cleanup. After first responders have completed their investigation and have released the scene for remediation, we thoroughly clean and restore the property to its previous condition,” said Terry Haufler, owner of Bio-One. “We work with compassion to alleviate the pain and burden that may still exist for community members after first responders leave. Bio-One strives to provide the needed assistance and resources to those immediately impacted. The remnants of a traumatic scene shouldn’t have to be seen by family, friends, property owners and neighbors. We’ve had the honor of being called in for some of the community’s most delicate cases, and we respect our clients’ confidentiality and privacy in all of these matters.”
As a 2021 corporate sponsor of the Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund, Bio-One, Inc. will also pay tribute to fallen officers during the virtual 33rd Annual Candlelight Vigil on May 13 at 5:00 p.m. (PDT). The event will be broadcasted live on Facebook, YouTube, and LawMemorial.org/CV.
“We are so thankful for Bio-One’s corporate partnership and their continued support of the Memorial Fund,” said Marcia Ferranto, CEO of the National Law Enforcement Memorial Fund. “This partnership will further bolster the Memorial Fund’s mission of honoring America’s Law Enforcement, as well as provide support for the Museum’s upcoming exhibition opening in September. We are grateful for their commitment.”
Established in 1984, the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund is a nonprofit organization dedicated to honoring the fallen, telling the story of American law enforcement, and making it safer for those who serve. The Memorial Fund maintains the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial in Washington, D.C., which honors the names of all of the 22,611 officers who have died in the line of duty throughout U.S. history.
