At their March 28, 2018, meeting, Hampton Township Council designed April, 2018 as First Responders Month, recognizing individuals, both career and volunteer, from Law Enforcement, Fire, Emergency Medical Services, 911 Dispatchers and Organizations in the Public Safety Sector come together as First Responders to protect and aid the public in the event of an emergency.
Every day First Responders risk their own safety and personal property in the performance of their duties to protect our citizenry. First Responders are ready to aid people 24 hours per day, seven (7) days a week. First Responders are our first and best defense against all emergencies that may threaten our community, whatever their nature. First Responders are a vital part of our community who maintain safety and order in time of crisis, and volunteer their time in our community and schools. First Responders spend countless hours in training, are highly trained specialized workers who utilize their skills for the public good and often for no pay.
The Council, Controller and Administrative Staff of the Township of Hampton wishes to extend their sincerest thanks to members of the Hampton Police Department, Hampton Volunteer Fire Department, North Hampton Volunteer Fire Department, Shaler Hampton EMS and the Hampton Fire Police for their daily efforts in protecting the safety of the Hampton citizenry.
