Memorials presented to the PAASS Program
NAAREF and the PAASS Program express sympathy to all those who have lost loved ones or friends and wish to have them remembered through a memorial. We are extremely grateful to those families who, during their time of grief, decided to request that memorial donations be made to the PAASS Program. Those memorials will be used in the production of our PAASS safety and educational program with the goal of preventing injury or death to those engaged in the aerial application industry. The donors remain on the list for a year after their donation is received.
