HAMMOND, La. (BRPROUD) – The work of first responders is never easy.
Whether it is on the front lines in a hospital, tackling crime or responding to fires, first responders deal with big life events on a daily basis.
Sometimes, we need to show our appreciation for the job first responders do and that is what some people did when a bouquet of flowers showed up at the Hammond Fire Department Airport Station.
The Hammond Police Department posted this message on their Facebook page:
Usually, firefighters are called out to someone’s worst day. We see more bad, sad and terrible in one day than most see in a lifetime. This bouquet of flowers was dropped off at our Airport station by loved ones of one of those situations. These gestures and acts of kindness make our days bright and help keep us going. We try to make people’s day better, sometimes they do the same for us.
