First Responder Burial Options in NJ

Paying Tribute to First Responders in NJ

First responders are the first to arrive at any emergency scene. They ignore the danger or risk to their own lives to serve the needs of others. First responders save the lives of countless people in our communities every day, selflessly dedicating their lives to others and taking whatever means necessary to deal with emergencies. All too often, first responders fall as victims themselves — making the ultimate sacrifice to help others. When this happens, we must pay tribute to these heroes with a burial service that truly honors their life.

At Memorial Properties, we take great care in helping the families of first responders make arrangements that properly pay tribute to these staples of our community. When a death occurs, we work with the family of the first responder to ensure that any relevant traditions and rituals are followed and that their loved one is put to rest in a way that honors their service to their community. We also encourage first responders in NJ to take advantage of our burial pre-planning service, so that decisions can be made ahead of time and stress and costs can be avoided in the future. We provide our comprehensive burial services at our ten cemetery and mausoleum locations in NJ, giving all those in the area access to the resources they need to craft a respectful burial. Learn more about first responder burials and how we can honor the first responder in your life, and please don’t hesitate to contact us today with any questions you may have.

Traditions and Rituals for First Responder Burials in NJ

There are many different traditions and rituals for first responder burials, all of which will vary depending on the specific division of the first responder. Before traditions and rituals are followed for any given first responder, it is important to honor any unique wishes of the deceased and their family. If the first responder pre-planned their funeral, their exact wishes will be followed. If not, the family’s wishes will be honored.

Many families choose to work with an appointed representative from the first responder’s division to decide which traditions and rituals they would like to incorporate into the burial service. This may include an honor guard or a similar ritual. Because Memorial Properties has experience with first responder funerals, we can also provide insight into the options available to families to properly honor their loved one. We often work with families of police officers and firefighters, incorporating the unique traditions of their police and fire departments into the service. Each family that works with us at Memorial Properties is treated as a top priority.

Pre-Planning and Funeral Planning for First Responders

First responders who are still living are aware of the risks that come with their job. Pre-planning a funeral service ensures that all wishes will be carried out in case a death occurs down the road. Some divisions for first responders may require some sort of pre-planning to ensure the individual is properly honored. Memorial Properties has worked with many first responders in the tri-state area to pre-plan arrangements and provide this peace of mind.

Those who pre-plan with Memorial Properties, including first responders, gain access to a variety of benefits. This includes our Family Records Portfolio, which cannot be purchased in stores for any price. This portfolio is a place to store all information that your family will need at the time of death, giving your loved ones access to everything that is rightfully theirs. When you pre-plan your arrangements with us, you will also receive a certificate of credit up to $1495 to put towards an above-ground space, in-ground interment space, or community bible niche at one of our locations. Since first responders put their lives on the line to protect those throughout NJ, pre-planning provides peace of mind and assurance that all wishes will be met in the case of a death.
