First responders, firefighters, law enforcement agencies, and emergency medical services are at stake every time they exit the door. They know the dangerous responses they may encounter and the sacrifices they may make to the community, but they take advantage of that opportunity.

During this period, we invite the community to participate in prayer for all family and friends of Assistant Chief Lucas Stephenson.
