Florida First Responder Appreciation Week Jan. 9-13

For the third consecutive year, Gov. Rick Scott has proclaimed Jan. 9-13, 2017, Florida First Responder Appreciation Week.

CF is proud to provide outstanding programs that train students to be first responders. Our graduates have saved countless lives.

Gov. Scott writes, When Pulse Nightclub in Orlando was attacked during the early morning hours of Sunday, June 12, 2016, Florida’s brave first responders put their lives on the line to rescue the injured and prevent an even more horrific tragedy. During hurricanes Hermine and Matthew, our brave men and women in uniform courageously rescued many Floridians, assisted with evacuations, and responded to the needs of communities. From law enforcement officers to fire fighters, paramedics, and emergency medical responders, there is always someone we can call upon to protect and help us and our families in an emergency. As a father and grandfather, I take comfort in this fact and I know that many of our state’s residents share that sentiment.”

Take time this week to thank our Criminal Justices and EMS students, instructors and our community’s active first responders.
