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.
