National First Responders Day

Congress designated Oct. 28 as National First Responders Day in 2017. The day honors the police officers, paramedics, EMTs, firefighters and 911 operators who answer the call when a crisis arises, often putting their own lives on the line. Serving as a national day of gratitude, National First Responders Day pays tribute to their services to their communities and honors fallen first responders. National First Responders Day is also a call for action to support first responders.
