submitting the required documentation for eligible families to receive the federal death benefit offered
by the Department of Justice Public Safety Officer Benefits Program. Steve does an outstanding job of
assisting families and departments after a firefighter’s death, and he is known for his attention to detail
ensuring all the needs of the families and departments are met.
Chief Schreiber has been and continues to be a dedicated leader of the Wisconsin LAST, with a passion
for caring for his fellow firefighters and their families. I am confident that there are many fire chiefs,

members of fire departments, and families of fallen heroes who would attest to Steve’s commitment.
Steve is worthy of the nomination and deserves to be recognized for his many years of dedication to
