Congress designated October 28 as National First Responders Day in 2017. The resolution honors the firefighters, police officers, EMTs, and all those who are first on the scene in stressful situations.
Notably, the family of Sean Collier, a police officer ambushed and murdered during events related to the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing, supported the resolution. Whether you’ve had your own emergency or not, it’s not hard to understand and appreciate the dangerous and difficult work they do. (Info by National Today.)
