Dear Bereavement Uniform Program (BUP) Group Members
Attached is a Bereavement Uniform Program link up instruction sheet.
Bereavement Uniform Program Class A Dress Cap
Welcome and thank you very much for stepping up and taking part in the Bereavement
Uniform Program (BUP). It is through your efforts and the efforts of many others that
every firefighter, paid or volunteer, active or retired, can be afforded this ‘earned’
recognition of service; the opportunity to answer their ‘last call’ in a Dress Uniform, at
no cost to their family.
The first order of business; Get your department ‘linked up’.
Please Note: Linking the BUP to local department websites and/or Facebook pages is
the cornerstone of the whole BUP effort. It was deemed so important the Washington
Fire Chiefs staff stepped up and created the hyperlink and coding.
Below is the hyperlink and coding as well as a list of ‘tools’ available to introduce the
linking forms and ‘Be Remembered’ Challenge Coins, please contact me directly at
firstname.lastname@example.org or give us a call at 800-426-5225.

The ultimate goal of the BUP: create a new ‘shared awareness’ within America’s
firefighting community regarding who is entitled to answer their ‘last call’ in a Class A
from some to all and provide a way to do it.
The pieces are in place. The program has been tested. It works and is ready. If you
and your department step-up and ‘link up’ there is a very good chance that America’s
fire-fighting community will take a giant step in ‘taking care of those who took care of us’
