As I was driving through town the other day, I pulled over to to let some firetrucks, with their lights and sirens on, go by. My daughter asked me why we were stopping, so I told her that the firetrucks needed to get to an emergency. She then replied, oh yeah, because firemen save people and so do policemen. I thought she put it well, in very simple terms.
Even though it isn’t Fire Prevention Week, or Crime Prevention Week, or Public Service Recognition Week, it’s important to take time out of our day to thank and acknowledge the men and women that keep our communities safe throughout the year. Often a simple thank you is enough, but how about showing support with caps, tees, and sweatshirts emblazoned with the logo of your local fire or police departments? What more pride could be felt by your local public safety teams when they see community members proudly sporting their logos?
Let’s not forget what they do for us day in and day out. After all, they save people.
