Throughout this incredible community we call home, we are fortunate to have hard working men and women who dedicate their lives to protecting, helping, and serving others. There are many types of heroes who spend their time improving the lives of others through difficult positions, including military, firefighters/EMS, healthcare professionals, law enforcement, and teachers. Whether they wear uniforms or scrubs, lanyards or badges, we are grateful for their service.
Here at The Reichert Mortgage Team, we love taking any opportunity we can to shine a spotlight for those who serve. We are thrilled to announce our new series: Heroes in the Community, where we will take an opportunity to honor the heroes in our local Falcon and Colorado Springs area. We hope to share local events, holidays, fundraising opportunities, charitable organizations, honorary people, and so much more with you, so keep in tune for what is to come!
Honoring Our Firefighters
For the launch of the series, we are proud to spotlight the incredibly brave Firefighters throughout Eastern Colorado Springs, Falcon, Black Forest, and Peyton that protect our community each day. To the Fire departments, the career firefighters, the reserve (volunteer) firefighters, and the EMS professionals who all work together to care for the health and safety of our community, we are grateful to you!
At The Reichert Mortgage Team, we would like to sincerely thank the incredible Fire Departments that surround us including Falcon Fire Department which incorporates 113-square-miles of unincorporated El Paso County, Black Forest Fire Rescue Protection District, and the Colorado Springs Fire Department.
Homes for Heroes® for Firefighters
As a veteran, there is nothing I love more than serving my community, and I am honored to be surrounded by incredible heroes such as firefighters that serve my neighbors each day through safety and bravery. One of the ways I am proud to serve the community of Colorado Springs and Falcon is through the Homes for Heroes® program. We are an official Homes for Heroes® Affiliate as a mortgage lender, and we want to ensure that all of the incredible firefighters in El Paso County are educated about the mortgage benefits they can receive. Our team is incredibly grateful for our first responders, and we want to take this moment to give back to those who lay their lives down for others every day.
