DeKalb County to Honor First Responders

By Staff Reports

DeKALB COUNTY, Ala. — It is time to honor the First Responders of DeKalb County. An appreciation event will be held on Saturday, May 18 at 2pm at the Rainsville City Park for First Responders Day.

The First Responders committee would like to encourage everyone to come together as a community to celebrate and show appreciation to first responders for their long hours, time away from their families, and putting their lives on the line to serve their communities daily. 

First Responders run towards danger while others run away and work long hours even on holidays, nights and weekends. Paid firemen are on call 24/7, while police officers’ families never know when they leave home, if they’ll ever return. 

The dispatchers are the first line of communications for people having possibly the worst day of their lives. They set the tone for the agency responding with calmness, professionalism and compassion. 

The job of a First Responder is a thankless one. These men and women do not do this job for the pay. They do it to serve their community, save lives and protect property.
