About the Great First Responder Awards program: First 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 Central Texas Trauma Regional Advisory Council.
