Thank a First Responder – someone who is trained or designated to respond to an emergency.
A First Responder typically includes 911 operators, paramedics, police officers, firefighters, rescuers, and other trained members of organizations connected with this type of work.
Whenever you encounter an emergency situation, you are bound to interact with at least one of these kinds of individuals.
Even in a non-emergent situation you may still seek the assistance of these professionals.
Whenever there is an emergency or a disaster strikes, we always look to these people for help. It takes a very brave, courageous, and composed individual to work any of these jobs.
Not many people out there are willing to put their lives on the line for a complete stranger. The families of some of these First Responders wonder every single day if their loved one will return home safely after the end of a long and difficult day.
Whether it be a medical emergency, a house fire, a natural disaster, we can always count on these people to step up and help the people around them. Coweta County is truly blessed with some of the best and bravest First Responders.
As a community, everyone seems to look out for one another and hold the town’s best interests close to heart. Next time you see a First Responder around town, be sure to stop them and thank them for their service to this community.
By working together, we can all make this town even better and safer for our families. If you are interested in becoming involved with the First Responders, you can join the Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Program.
This program educates members of the community about disaster preparedness for hazards and situations that impact our area. Trainees learn disaster response skills, such as fire safety, search, and rescue, team organization and disaster medical operations. You can learn more at www.citizencorps.gov.
It’s important that our community works together to find ways to aid our First Responders and to show our gratitude and appreciation to these outstanding people. This community still has a small-town vibe and citizens look out for one another.
Working together not only brings us close, but also helps us to have a safer and healthier community.
To give back, Tim Stout and Associates has partnered with Matt’s Roofing and the Mad Greek and will be hosting a Feed the Police event on September 18th from 11:30am-1:30 pm at the Coweta County Sheriff’s Department on Greison Trail to thank our local police officers for their service.
We encourage our community to join us in showing our appreciation to these outstanding officers.
