Photos: Saying 'thank you' on National First Responders Day

Today – and every day – we thank you for your dedication, commitment and sacrifice as you protect and serve your communities


By Police1 Staff

In 2017, Congress designated October 28 as National First Responders Day. Today – and every day – we thank you for your dedication, commitment and sacrifice as you continue to protect and serve your communities. Below, we have included a roundup of appreciation posts for our nation's first responders. If we missed yours, email us at editor@police1.com and we'll add it to our list.

And for those looking for ways to honor our nation's responders today (or any day), here are three easy things you can do:

  1. Thank a responder: A "thank you" always goes a long way. You can show your gratitude in a simple way like in a personalized card or treating a department or agency to a meal. 
  2. Start a fundraiser: Again, this doesn't have to be a huge undertaking. You can hold a bake sale or open a lemonade stand – a little help goes a long way. Any department – large or small – would be grateful for the support. Funds could help finance lifesaving equipment and resources for responders.
  3. Volunteer your time: Donating your time is one of the best ways to show your support. Call your local department or agency to see how you can get involved. 

From all of us at Police1.com, thank you for your service!
