Thank a first responder

Lytle VFD firemen battle one of several fires they fought on the 4th of July. Devine VFD, Castroville VFD, LaCoste VFD also responded to several calls for help that night totaling over a dozen in one night.

Right now is a tough time for first responders who are faced with negativity broadcasted across the country in recent weeks. Meanwhile, firemen, law enforcement, and EMS crews are working around the clock to keep us all safe. Medina County dispatchers fielded over two thousand calls that come into dispatch last week just in our little county.

On that note, we heard of a wonderful story we wanted to share with the community.

While on patrol duty Sunday night, Officer TJ Richardson stopped in at Subway in Natalia, and little did he know, he would be the recipient of a random act of kindness.

“A woman I didn’t know stepped in front of me and refused to let me pay for my meal,” Richardson said. “She didn’t just thank me for my service, she showed her gratitude with service of her own. Let this remind all of us first responders, what we see on TV doesn’t represent our nation as a whole.”

Now more than ever, first responders are risking their lives to save ours.

Thanks to all of you who protect us, and are always there in our times of crisis.
