Responder Down is a nationwide non-profit that was founded by First Responders, for First Responders.
Responder Down Founders, Sergio Martini & Kevin Raiche, are employed as full-time Police Officers in Southeastern WI.
In the fall of 2017, Sergio felt a compelling need to create a nationwide non-profit that financially supported the families of First Responders who have died in the line of duty.
Through research, Sergio identified a lack of immediate financial assistance for these families. Kevin was brought on in February of 2018 as a Co-Founder, and since then, both Kevin and Sergio have worked tirelessly to turn the idea of Responder Down into a national organization.
