Every day, unsung heroes help save lives nationwide. When emergencies arise, these heroes are the first to show up and the last to leave, significantly impacting the community, families and individuals they serve. You can make a difference by honoring and thanking these heroes for the excellent work they do on October 28. Consider how to show your appreciation on First Responder Day and salute the people for their service.

How Do You Thank a First Responder?

Although every day can and should be a first responder appreciation day, October 28 is National First Responders Day. Here are a few ways you can celebrate and thank first responders for their service:

  • Make a donation: Donate to one of the numerous local charities that support first responders. These non-profits may receive various material items, monetary donations or time donations.
  • Sponsor a meal: If you know a first responder, why not take them out or cook a meal for them and their family? A meal or treat is a great way to communicate your gratitude through something tangible.
  • Send a thank you note: Writing a thank you note or card can be a meaningful gesture to first responders. These individuals face traumas daily, and a note may remind them that what they do matters. Get the kids involved in making unique handmade cards. You can also write thank you posts on social media pages and tag local first responder agencies.
  • Say thank you in person: Do not wait for official days to express gratitude. Thank first responders when you see them during daily life. A simple “thank you for your service” can go a long way.
  • Attend local events: Many local, first responder non-profit organizations host fundraisers and fun days to honor emergency workers. Get involved, attend events and create awareness.
