Dedication

To Those Who Serve Us:

This blog is dedicated to the people that put their well-being at risk everyday to be there when we need them most….from the 9-1-1 dispatchers who endure the stress, to the EMT’s, Paramedics, Flight Nurses, Helicopter Pilots, Firefighters and Police Officers that put themselves in harms-way every shift. They are our neighbors, caregivers and protectors, (thanks.)
