The NJ FMBA Annual September Convention is approaching fast and we wanted to remind everyone to send in their Memorial Service Form in as soon as possible for the Memorial Ceremony which will be taking place on Tuesday, September 15th. 

In addition to members of your local who have passed (LINE OF DUTY, ACTIVE OR RETIRED) away between September 2019 and September 2020, we will also be remembering NJ FMBA family members who have passed away due to COVID-19 related complications.

2020 NJ FMBA Fallen Heroes 5K Race to be held virtually

This year marks our 18th annual race, and it has been challenging and uncertain year for us all. We have been closely monitoring the situation and holding out hope that we would be able to see you all in person on September 12th, but unfortunately, due to the current situation and factors beyond our control, we will be holding the race virtually this year. Your race registration will ensure you our commemorative NJFMBA Fallen Heroes 5k race shirt, multiple chances to win prizes, and most importantly will support the various charities we support including Team Shamrock, our newest recipient.


Virtual Support Group - Too Strong for Too Long

COVID-19 calls. Traumatic events in the workplace. Unrest, uncertainty, quarantine. 2020 has been an extraordinarily hard year to be a first responder. Join Too Strong for Too Long, a free, confidential support group for first responders, led by first responders from Penn Medicine Princeton House Behavioral Health. Using a virtual platform, join other men and women who serve and protect society for an interactive discussion on ways to maintain balance and structure in our lives, promote physical and mental wellbeing, and develop resiliency needed for your personal and professional success. Group facilitators are licensed therapists who are or have been first responders themselves, serving in the military, police, corrections, fire, and EMS services. The group will be held virtually via the BlueJeans video conferencing platform, which can be accessed from a computer, tablet, or smartphone. Participants will be emailed a link to join the video conference. Groups meet weekly, and participants can sign up for any number of sessions. All first responders and military members are welcome to participate.
