First Responders Working On The 4th Of July – Thank You!
July 5, 2012 Leave a Comment
From Galls, we certainly appreciate your efforts.
Without first responders – law enforcement, fire and rescue and emergency medical personnel – many public services would come to a grinding halt.
The efficiency and effectiveness or our country’s first responders is without equal. Their commitment and valor when it’s ‘go time’ is unquestioned. And, whether consciously or subconsciously, most citizens appreciate and value the work that is being done by public safety officers.
With millions of full time, part time and volunteers making up our network of first responders across the country, someone’s brother, father, sister or mother is involved with public safety in some way or another. We all know someone who is a cop or who administers first aid. Many of us have had first hand experience with a fire fighter or a security officer.
We might see them in coffee shops or grabbing lunch. We might sit down with them during church services or they may be our son’s Boy Scout leader. At family reunions and back yard barbecues or hundreds or other gatherings, we’re witness to the stories our first responders tell – stories of heroism, reality and warning.
First responders are strong threads in the fabric of our lives. They connect us and they protect us – and for that we’re grateful.
Holidays – especially ones like Independence Day – give us opportunities to say ‘thank you’. It might be the local firemen manning the parade route on 4th of July. It might be the policeman directing traffic or the EMTs on-hand in case of heat fatigue.
Wherever you were yesterday or wherever you are today – thank you first responders – you are appreciated!
