In an effort to highlight the types of case files handled by the Thin Blue Line of Michigan, periodic stories will be published to inform Michigan's Public Safety Community of the matters handled and outcomes.

In late February of 2013 a young Volunteer Fire Fighter while on a fire run died in the line of duty. He was a true Hero who through his volunteer service made his community safer.

Thin Blue Line of Michigan was referred to Mattawan Fire District by the City of Kalamazoo after having offered assistance during the Line of Duty Death of Police Officer Zapata. 

Thin Blue Line of Michigan offered assistance in filing all related Public Safety Officers Benefits for the Mattawan Fire District and the surviving family. Thin Blue Line of Michigan Representatives handled everything that needed to be done and for this Small Town these efforts provided peace of mind during a very difficult time.

In closing, evaluation statements provided the following comments about Thin Blue Line of Michigan's services.

" In a time of emotional Chaos and stress they are able to lessen the burden and provide peace of mind"

'If any other department experiences a Line of Duty Death, I would definitely reach out and recommend their services"
