Mayor Tyler Gandam has issued a statement on the occasion of International Firefighter's Day, May 4.
Around the world, firefighters are held in extremely high regard — they are who you call when you have a problem.
Proudly, these men and women respond to whatever gets thrown their way — fires, motor vehicle collisions, medical assists, chemical hazards, and more — and they find ways to solve the problem. Firefighters dedicate their lives to helping those in the community and are trusted with life and property.
International Firefighter’s Day is our opportunity to show appreciation to those who serve and make our community a safer place.
— Mayor Tyler Gandam
