When you fall off the roof or ladder, a loved one is having a heart attack, the house in on fire, there’s a wreck on the street, your child swallows a coin or worse got into something poisonous, who do you call? 9-1-1. Below is a paraphrased synopsis of Mayor Jon Nehring’s Procolation.

When you fall off the roof or ladder, a loved one is having a heart attack, the house in on fire, there’s a wreck on the street, your child swallows a coin or worse got into something poisonous, who do you call? 9-1-1. Below is a paraphrased synopsis of Mayor Jon Nehring’s Proclamation.

In 2017 the U.S. Congress designated October 28th as National First Responders Day to honor and recognize the heroic acts of the brave men and women who are first on the scene in stressful situations.

Firefighters, police officers, paramedics, Emergency Medical Technicians and other emergency personnel put other lives ahead of their own when they report to work in some of the most dangerous careers.

An estimated 240 million 9-1-1 calls are made in the U.S. every year, and EMS professionals care for about 22 million patients annually.

In Marysville, Fire District personnel responded to more than 16,000 emergency calls in 2022. Because more than 80% of calls are medically related, every Marysville firefighter is trained as a paramedic or EMT.

We are eternally grateful for the Marysville Police and Fire District first responders who risk it all as they dedicate themselves to serving and protecting our community.

JON NEHRING, MAYOR, on behalf of the City Council and our community, does hereby proclaim October 28th, 2023, as NATIONAL FIRST RESPONDERS’ DAY.

We in the City of Marysville encourage residents to express their appreciation for the hard work, dedication and crucial role of our local first responders.

When you see an officer, a fireperson, doctor, nurse, service member, take a moment to thank them.
