 FIRST RESPONDER DAY continues to be a success!

The Mountain Rim Fire Safe Council and State Senator Mike Morrell (R-Rancho

Cucamonga) invited the community to participate in a day of recognition for local

emergency personnel at the inaugural California First Responder Day at Snow Valley

Mountain Resort held on September 23, 2017.

First responders and their families, as well as the community, attended this special event. Activities included opportunities for kids to explore fire trucks, ambulance, police vehicles and helicopters. While meeting first responders there were demonstrations, safety information and special visits by Smokey Bear. Food vendors were also be onsite.

The Senate Resolution, authored by Senator Morrell and adopted by the State Senate, designates September 23rd as First Responder Day in California.

“California is prone to earthquakes, wildfires, flooding, and other disasters that all require active preparation and response efforts,” said Senator Morrell. “At the heart of our state’s emergency action capability are its first responders. No greater courage is demonstrated than that of the dedicated heroes who run into harm’s way rather than away from it. This day is one of gratitude and appreciation. I am honored to take part in recognizing these men and women.”


Plan on joining us again in 2019 in as we honor First Responders. Details pending.
