NORTH FRONTENAC PROCLAIMS MAY 1ST AS FIRST RESPONDERS’ DAY


NORTH FRONTENAC PROCLAIMS MAY 1ST AS FIRST RESPONDERS’ DAY

First responders are those men and women who, in the early stages of an emergency, are responsible for the protection and preservation of life, property, evidence and the environment. They include police officers, firefighters, military personnel, paramedics, medical evacuation pilots, dispatchers, nurses, doctors, emergency medical technicians and emergency managers.

First responders are volunteers and professionals who have dedicated their lives to public service. Their life-saving skills often make the difference between life and death. Their public service deserves to be recognized and honoured.

The Council of the Township of North Frontenac passed Resolution #558-12 on October 5, 2012 Declaring May 1st each year as First Responders Day to honour the Staff and Volunteers in the Township of North Frontenac for their importance in ensuring our homes and lives are protected and secure.

Although we are grateful and appreciative of our First Responders all year long, May 1st is an excellent opportunity to think of these persons and thank those in your community who perform this vital role.
