Pass legislation to designate a National First Responders Day
First Responders (Police, Firefighters, EMTs, and Paramedics) put their lives on the line everyday for people they don’t even know. They are more than good neighbors - they are our brothers, sisters, husbands, wives and friends. While everyone else is running away, they’re running towards the danger. It is time to honor them with a special day of their own: National First Responders Day. It’s long overdue and something all Americans can agree upon. So join the movement, sign the petition, spread the word on your social media and help as we petition Congress to make this day a reality.
To ensure this worthy cause gets the attention it deserves, we are committed to do what we can to get the issue in front of as many people as possible so that members of Congress hear our collective voice. While we are proud to be creating awareness, this movement is so much bigger than any person or brand. So whether you are a Hooters customer or never even considered coming to Hooters…please support our local heroes and sign the petition.
For nearly four years, Congress has been considering legislation to designate a national day of recognition for first responders. I believe it is time this legislation passes Congress and is presented to the President for his signature.
Frist responders are our brothers and sisters, sons and daughters and husbands and wives. They put themselves in harms way to save lives, ensure our communities are safer and protect our property, yet they are under-appreciated heroes of our communities. Congress has the ability to change that.
By creating a day of recognition for first responders, citizens across the country will be reminded annually of the sacrifices police, fire and EMS make to keep us all safe. I hope you and your colleagues will join me in thanking and recognizing these brave men and women.
