The SOA and SDA recently signed agreements with the county which created a bank of days for each union that members can donate days into to help facilitate others members to deploy to these funerals. BFTF members can then use the bank to replenish their own time that they utilized when traveling for these funerals. Members can voluntarily donate up to 3 Vacation or Personal leave days per year for this cause.
Members are welcome from all ranks. Please consider joining if you have not already.
Below we have attached a payroll deduction form as well as the bank donation / use form. These can also be found on the SOA & SDA websites as well as the department website. Additionally, the department order related to this is attached.
Please forward all completed application forms to any board member via inter-dept mail.
Forms for donating days or requesting days should be forwarded to the Chief of Department's office with a copy to the SOA or SDA.
For additional information about the bank of days, contact your respective union representative:

SDA- you can contact Jeff Cergol at 631-563-4408
