They are the first called and the first to respond when we need help…..our local police, firefighters, sheriffs. Natural heroes just by their calling. And the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo has made a point now to include First Responders for recognition.
It’s the Armed Services Recognition Committee that expanded its program to recognize First Responders Day at the rodeo. The evening begins with a bell ceremony to honor the fallen and then awards to First Responders of the Year to several individuals or agencies who performed heroic acts of saving other lives. The brief stories of these heroic acts….taken by these people as a job requisite is truly a calling. We should all remember and show gratitude to that.
