The governor has proclaimed Sunday, September 27th to be First Responders Day. Citizens for Milford joins Governor Baker in extending our sincerest gratitude to all the active and retired men and women of our local police force, fire department, and emergency medical service units.
We are putting those words into action by working to promote this important date. We have discussed this with the Board of Selectmen, and we have also asked the school department, library, and local business owners to post “Thank You” notices on their community message boards on 9/27. The response has been overwhelmingly enthusiastic.
Most importantly, we invite YOU to join us in thanking the dedicated men and women of our local police force, fire department, and emergency medical service units who honor our community with their commitment and service. Your “thank you” can come anytime so don’t worry if you miss out on September 27th.
Here are a few ideas:
- Take a moment and say “thank you” to a first responder in our community.
- Ask the young people in your life to draw pictures, write a poem, or make thank you cards.
- Bake a special treat and drop it off at the police station, fire station, or ER.
- Recall a moment when a first responder has helped you or a loved one and write about it in a thank you letter.
