Recognize Local Heroes: Fire Fighters and Police Officers

by | Feb 3, 2012 | 0 comments

Fire fighters and police officers go through extensive training and must pass written, physical, and medical examinations. These local heroes help protect the public against dangers by responding to a variety of emergencies.

Although they put out fires, fire fighters more frequently respond to other emergencies. They are often the first emergency personnel at the scene of an accident or medical emergency and may be called upon to treat injuries or perform other vital functions. At every emergency scene, fire fighters perform specific duties assigned by a superior officer.

If you didn’t day dream of being a fire fighter, you may have thought about fighting crime as a police officer. An officer must be prepared to face many different types of situations and different occupational dangers, even death. On a more positive note, officers can experience the joy of saving a person’s life and feel good about making the community a safer place.

These inspiring men and women work hard to keep our neighborhoods safe. Do your part today in recognizing your local heroes. If you have a story you’d like to share, find us on Facebook! You can also nominate them for “Presenta Plaque to your Hero!” We’re giving you the chance to nominate someone whose incredible actions should be recognized.  Read our blog for more information.
