National First Responders Day
We would like to take a moment and thank all first responders for their hard work and sacrifice for their communities.
In 2017, Congress designated October 28th as National First Responders Day after a resolution was passed in the U.S. Senate. The resolution was passed to honor the firefighters, police officers, EMTs, and all those who are first on the scene in stressful situations.
Few normally give much thought to those who dedicate their lives to being on the front lines in the scene of an emergency. We go about our daily activities secure in the knowledge that, if needed, they will be there ready to help, even at the risk of their own lives. During a crisis, these brave people become the most important people in the world to those in desperate need.
