Firefighters dedicate their lives to the protection of life, property and environment. In all cases it risks the ultimate sacrifice of a firefighter’s life reminds Fire Chief Sam DiGiovanna.
International Firefighters’ Day is a time where the world’s community can recognize and honor the sacrifices that firefighters make to ensure that their communities and environment are as safe as possible. International Firefighters’ Day is observed each year beginning the first week of May. Many Fire Departments also open their doors to the Public as “Fire Service Day” around May 7th– 14th.
Show your support and appreciation to the firefighters worldwide who continue to protect us so well throughout the year. Contact your local Fire Dept. and see if they are holding Fire Service day. If so, drop by give them a thanks and say hi.
Emergency Medical Service (EMS) Week is May 15 – 21, 2016. Giving praise to thank the men and women who tirelessly work each day to serve their communities whether it be through paramedics or private ambulance who respond to critical emergency situations.
Additionally, May 15th is Peace Officers Memorial Day and the week in which that date falls as Police Week. Give a huge thank you to the men and women who protect and serve us as well – They deserve it – And their lives DO matter!
