Bryant Law Center to Sponsor First Responders Education Day
Release Date: October 27, 2020
The Paducah Parks & Recreation Department is partnering with the Paducah Fire and Police departments for the first-ever First Responders Education Day. Bryant Law Center is sponsoring the virtual event which will be held Wednesday, October 28. This date coincides with National First Responders Day.
Mark Bryant said, “The Bryant Law Center is proud to sponsor the inaugural First Responders Education Day. We’re grateful for the first responders in our community and the work they do each and every day. Our firm is excited to be a part of an event that is not only educational for the youth in our community but also showcases Paducah’s outstanding fire and police departments.”
Bryant Law Center is donating $250 each to the Paducah Fire Department and the Paducah Police Department for the charities that they support. The Paducah Fire Department supports the Muscular Dystrophy Association, and the Paducah Police Department will use the donation to support Christmas Cops.
During the day on October 28, videos will be posted on the Facebook event page that showcase Paducah firefighters and police officers as they give virtual "Touch-A-Truck" style tours of their vehicles and the equipment they use on a daily basis. These educational videos are for all ages but specifically for preschool and elementary children. The Facebook event page link is https://www.facebook.com/events/843621713050771/.
In 2017, Congress designated October 28 as National First Responders Day to honor firefighters, police officers, EMTs, and others who are first on the scene in stressful or dangerous situations.
