Emergency responders honored

fire fighters honoredWARSAW – Rarely do public servants receive the recognition and honor that they deserve. This is especially true of first responders such as police, fire fighters, and EMTs. In January, the First Presbyterian Church of Warsaw celebrated those who serve their community in the Walhonding Valley Fire District. In total, there were 16 men and women who were thanked for their service. Despite fighting a fire until the 2:30 a.m. they made it to the Presbyterian Church by 9 a.m. Jesus taught that the greatest among us are those who serve. Firefighters certainly do this on a regular basis as they help friends and strangers, put their lives in danger, and live by the motto “First In, Last Out.” Christians from every corner of the world can learn from firefighters. We not only champion their work, but we aspire to care for the world with the same level of devotion, responsibility, and risk. When you see a first responder, please remember that a hand shake, a smile, and a few words of thanks go a long way in showing appreciation.
