If you were at the Pentagon or WTC on 9-11 or after and have not filed a victim compensation claim, read the following:
On July 29, 2019, the President signed into law The Never Forget the Heroes: James Zadroga, Ray Pfeifer, and Luis Alvarez Permanent Authorization of the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund. The VCF Permanent Authorization Act extends the VCF’s claim filing deadline from December 18, 2020, to October 1, 2090, and appropriates such funds as may be necessary to pay all approved claims. The VCF recognizes that claimants will have many questions about the impact of the legislation on their claims. The VCF is committed to processing claims without interruption and issuing full payments to those who received a reduced award. Additional details about the VCF Permanent Authorization Act can be found here. Please check the following website frequently for updates: https://www.vcfgov/

NoVa Firefighter's Emerald Society Pipe Band
Updated On: Oct 23, 2019
The Northern Virginia Firefighters’ Emerald Society Pipe Band (NVFESPB) is recruiting new members to become bagpipe and drum students. If you already know how to play either instrument, come tryout as a walk-on.
NVFESPB represents fire and rescue departments from across Northern Virginia. We participate in many regional parades and perform at recruit and other department ceremonies. Most importantly we honor our fallen at line of duty death funerals and the National Fallen Firefighters’ Foundation Annual Memorial Weekend held in Emmitsburg, Maryland each October.
For more information please see attached flyer for details.
