About the Great First Responder Awards program:
Responders are chosen from and by their department to be honored for service above
and beyond the call of duty. Someone who went the extra mile. Someone who is always
there when needed. Someone who should be recognized for a particular act of heroism
or many years of faithful service to their community. That’s a Great First Responder.
This program is jointly sponsored by CareFlite and the North
Trauma Regional Advisory Council.
