Peace Bridge illumination to honor responders!

Posted on March 9, 2017 at 10:45 PM

Tri-Community is honored to have received notice from the Buffalo and Fort Erie Public Bridge Authority that our proposal has been approved!

On April 29th and April 30th, 2017 from dusk and running until 1am, the PEACE BRIDGE will be lit in RED, BLUE, GREEN and GOLD colors to honor ALL emergency responders during the annual FASNY Recruit NY Open House weekend!

Nearly 70% of your responders nationwide are 100% VOLUNTEER! This upcoming weekend helps highlight the need for more volunteers and helps us reach out into the community to attract more help.

You may ask the significance of the colors. Emergency Services is a TEAM approach, and all parts must work together to deliver a quality product to our residents in their time of need.

RED - honoring Firefighters.

BLUE - honoring Law Enforcement

GREEN - honoring EMS

The last color, GOLD, represents the often forgotten, or "silent" heroes. Tri-Community appreciates and honors our Dispatchers and Emergency Communications workers. The first link in the emergency services chain is 911. The first responder you talk to in a crisis is the dispatcher, who in turn sends out the appropriate department and resources. Tri-Community applauds "the voice that follows the tone",

Tri-Community invites you to check out your local fire station or EMS Squad next month to see what services they offer and how you may help. Tri-Community also invites you to enjoy the colors on the Peace Bridge as they shine bright for ALL emergency responders.

Tri-Community Ambulance Service, Inc. NEEDS YOUR HELP!

 

Each year FASNY hosts a "Recruit NY" weekend aimed at educating the public on what our local volunteer emergency services do, and how they need your help. Most people do not realize that when they call 911, 70% of our nations responders are 100% volunteer! These men and women leave their families, friends and even work to answer an emergency within the community.

 

To ensure we have the proper staffing for when the alarm sounds, ALL volunteer agencies must continue to recruit annually! Did you know in 2016, Tri-Community had 1,450 calls within our community?

 

This year Tri-Community is grateful to partner with 2 of our local fire companies to have events on BOTH of the event days.


 

How can YOU help? Many ways, actually. Come out and learn what YOUR local service does for YOU! If you do not have the time to volunteer, or the serious nature of this business is not your cup of tea, help us promote this event to your friends and family. Please share this post to everyone!

 

On our company facebook page, there are 2 events posted for the recruitment weekend. Please help us share these events so we can get more people to these fire stations to help us help you!

 

This year we will be hosting the recruitment weekend at:

 

Saturday April 29th: BERGHOLZ FIRE COMPANY on Niagara Road

Sunday April 30th: ST JOHNSBURG FIRE COMPANY on Ward Road

 

 

Please share our events and check out our company website for up-to-date company information!

 

Thank you!
