We're Here To Celebrate and Honor Our First Responders

Do you know a first responder with a remarkable story? We are seeking first responders who go above and beyond, actively contribute to their community, and have a passion for what they do. Tell us their story and you could be eligible to win cash prizes for the nominees as well as get their story featured online and in local media! This is a chance to honor the hardworking local heroes in our hometowns who take the initiative to make their world a better place for all and inspire those who strive to dream big. If you know a firefighter, EMT, paramedic, police officer, sheriff, state trooper, or frontline hospital worker who has made a difference in their area, we'd love to hear their story.

Story submission will be accepted starting Monday, August 10th through September 4th, 2020 and is open to all residents within the southern California region, Cheyenne (WY), and Alaska.

For each region, five first responder stories will be selected to be highlighted on our website. For those selected stories the first responder that is featured in the story will receive a $250 gift card. In addition, a donation of $250 to a local first responder charity will be awarded.
