This is the week set aside to "Thank" all of the wonderful people that serve our town and county.

These incredible individuals help birth babies via the phone, comfort spouses when their partner is injured or deceased. They calm assist victims of all ages during and after their incident.

If there are calls reporting accidents, fire, flooding, drownings or storms they work together seamlessly in contacting multiple firemen, ambulances and law personnel. They contact counselors, Animal control or whomever might be of assistance.

These heroic individuals are "your" true 1st responders! Unlike the other responders (which are just as essential) they may never know the outcome of their efforts.

During these especially tough times please help us in making sure they all know that we appreciate all that they do. If you would like to show you care, a special Thank you card with a "gift card" included for the center to share would be awesome!
