Thank you for supporting our local first responders
(WGGB/WSHM) - Our local first responders put their lives on the line every day. Fire, EMS, police: they’re running in when others are running out and the equipment they use on calls is critical, but expensive.
Throughout the day Tuesday, Western Mass News asked you to join us during our First Responders Giving Day as we helped raise funds for local departments.
Hear stories from local first responders on the need and expense of the gear they require to help protect our communities:
