BROADVIEW, IL, April 13, 2012 – Wilbert Funeral Services, Inc (WFSI) introduces a new philanthropic program, Commemorating First Responders, which donates burial vaults and urns for first responders who have died in the line of duty.

Families of firefighters, law enforcement officers, and emergency medical personnel receive, at no charge, a Wilbert Stainless Steel Triune® burial vault when traditional burial is chosen.  If cremation is chosen, Wilbert offers families a choice from four high-quality urns; if the cremains are to be buried, a Stainless Steel Triune urn vault is also provided.  Each vault comes with a beautiful Wilbert Legacy Custom® personalized carapace, donated by Legacy Prints, one of WFSI’s vendor partners.

“Wilbert and our network of Licensees across the United States and Canada are both honored and humbled to provide this program to those who have sacrificed their lives in valiant service to the community,” said Dennis Welzenbach, President of WFSI. “The men and women who dedicate their lives to helping those in critical need are true heroes.  Helping their families honor their loved one’s service and ultimate sacrifice is just something we felt we needed to do.”

The nearly 200-strong network of Wilbert Licensees shares in the contribution of the vault and urn, but also provide, where permitted, a WilbertWay™ graveside setup.  The display of the personalized carapace on the vault cover at the graveside adds to the commemoration of the fallen hero.  The final sealing and lowering of the vault is also part of the WilbertWay service.

The Funeral Professionals who provide the service to the families play a vital role in the success of the Commemorating First Responders program.  WFSI invites funeral professionals and others to contact a Wilbert licensee or visit www.wilbert.hmsbox.com/responders to learn how to participate in this program commemorating heroic lives, sacrificed in valiant service to local communities.
