Mon Valley area first responders honored for commitment to community service

Monday, July 14, 2014, 1:21 a.m.
 

State Sen. James R. Brewster, D-McKeesport, welcomed first responders from across the 45th Senatorial District to McKeesport on Sunday to celebrate their commitment to community service.

The second annual First Responders Picnic invited police, firefighters, EMS and their families to enjoy a day of food and fun in Renziehausen Park.

“This is becoming an annual event,” Brewster said. “It's an opportunity to recognize, reward and honor our first responders and their families.”

Glenn Cannon, director of the Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency, commended Brewster for hosting the event and told those in attendance that residents in their own communities and across the state value their work.

“This recognition of what you do is very important,” Cannon said.
