Governor Declares 9/14 "First Responder Day"Governor M. Jodi Rell announced that she is declaring Thursday, September 14, 2006 "First Responders Day" in Connecticut.
"As we reflect on the fifth anniversary of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, we are reminded of the critical role first responders played in the recovery efforts at Ground Zero and in their efforts in making our communities safe and strong. Declaring First Responders Day is my way of urging the people of this great state to join me in saying 'thank you' to firefighters, police officers, emergency medical technicians and others for the courage, bravery and dedication they demonstrate each and everyday on our behalf. First responders are true heroes. For that, we are forever grateful. Unfortunately, we do not say it enough," Governor Rell said.
