A Grundy County State Senator is proposing to declare First Responders Day in Illinois on October 28th.
State Senator Patrick Joyce’s proposed legislation cleared the Senate Wednesday. This idea was brought to Joyce by a 911 dispatcher in Kankakee County and led to Senate Resolution 534.
This designated day will recognize and remember the first responders that lost their lives and extends gratitude as they continuously put their lives on the line for the citizens of Illinois.
In addition, it specifically thanks 911 dispatchers, as well as firefighters, police officers, emergency medical technicians and paramedics for their commitment to Illinois public safety.
Senate Resolution 534 was adopted by the Senate with bipartisan support.
