First responders were honored for their service in Marion County, not just for the anniversary of 9/11 but for what they do everyday.

In the 12 years since the attacks of 9/11, first response has become a national topic, and on Wednesday our local emergency officials joined together in Veterans Square to be recognized for the daily service they provide across our area.

As officials from the city, and county spoke in honor of our emergency personnel,the one theme of the day continued to be the selflessness and courage these officials put on out on the line every single day just to keep you safe.

"Each day when our first responders wake up they don't know what the day is going to hold, they don't know if they are going to com home or not. Those thoughts don't even enter their minds. Their main focus is saving people, saving lives, and that's what they do everyday, and it takes some really courageous people to do that." said Chris McIntyre, Marion County Director of Homeland Security and Emergency Management

Officials in Marion County hope to make this Patriot's Day celebration a continued tradition to honor first responders in our area, and thank them for all they do every single day of the year.
