In early 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, there will not be an in-person celebration. However, there are plenty of ways to celebrate first responders virtually and from a distance:
- Print out the provided colouring page or the thank you note available at www.chestermere.ca/firstrespondersday and attach it to your windows. If you can, tag the City on social media and use the hashtag #chestermerefr to participate.
- Do you want to send an appreciation note to a first responder? Consider using our online form at www.chestermere.ca/thankyoufr
- Keep an eye out for our photo series showcasing a first responder from each Community Safety department. Follow the City on Facebook or Instagram.
- Wave at a first responder if they are passing by.
First Responders Day will take place each year on May 1. Learn more at www.chestermere.ca/firstrespondersday.
