First Responders Day
Saturday, May 1, 2021
In 2021 City Council proclaimed that May 1, 2021, would be the first annual First Responders Day. This Council-directed motion is in honour of our first responders who serve our community.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, we cannot celebrate in person. However, there are plenty of ways we can celebrate virtually and from a distance.
Check out the hashtag #chestermerefr on social media to find additional ways to participate.
1. Print out the provided colouring page or the thank you note and attach it to your windows. If you can, tag the City on social media and use the hashtag #chestermerefr to participate.
2. Do you want to send an appreciation note to a first responder? Consider using our online form rather than physical mail.
3. Keep an eye out for our photo series showcasing a first responder from each Community Safety department.
4. Wave at a first responder if they are passing by.
First Responders Day will take place each year on May 1. Attached below are three printable versions of the images below:
