Many of these occupations have been addressed separately, however they also deserve recognition as a group to honor their work and dedication. First Responders are inspirational. First Responders are necessary to aid people that find themselves in emergency situations.
This occurs much too often. September 11, 2001 was one of these emergency situations. First Responders to the Twin Towers terrorist attacks on these World Trade Center buildings called many First Responders into action. Almost 3,000 victims were killed when attackers flew hijacked airplanes into the buildings causing them to collapse. First Responders did, thankfully, rescue over 100 people from the collapsed buildings. A third plane was crashed into the Pentagon in Arlington County, Virginia. A fourth plane was crashed into a field (meant for Washington D.C.) in Stonycreek Township, Pennsylvania. The attacks killed almost 3,000 people total and injured over 6,000 others. Thankfully the country had many heroes that day, including First Responders.
First Responders include police officers, firefighters, paramedics, and EMTs (emergency medical technicians). The heroism, courage, and skill of these people is truly inspiring. Pictures from the day of First Responders raising the American flag is also inspiring. Many people are still helped by others due to the aftermath of the attacks today.
Everyday emergencies occur as well. First Responders are helpful, courageous, and inspiring. Be inspired! Have a bright day!
