Thank you Governor Rell and thank you First Responders!

Governor Rell Declares September 14, 2006
as “First Responders Day” in Connecticut

Governor M. Jodi Rell announced today that she will
declare Thursday, September 14, 2006 as “First Responders
Day” in the state of Connecticut. “As we reflect on the
fifth anniversary of the terrorist attacks of September 11,
2001, we are reminded of the critical role first responders
played in the recovery efforts at Ground Zero and in their
efforts in making our communities safe and strong. Our first
responders have proved time and time again that they stand
ready to serve.”

“Declaring First Responders Day is my way of urging
the people of this great state to join me in saying ‘thank
you’ to firefighters, police officers, emergency medical
technicians and others for the courage, bravery and
dedication they demonstrate each and everyday on our
behalf,” Governor Rell said. “First responders are true
heroes. For that, we are forever grateful. Unfortunately, we
do not say it enough.”
