WHEREAS, first responders are trained volunteers and professionals that are designated to provide immediate expert response in emergency situations; and

WHEREAS, Alaskans benefit from the knowledge, skills, and dedication of first responders, as they work together to ensure prompt response to a wide variety of natural disasters and domestic emergencies in both urban and rural settings, often in extreme weather conditions, dangerous terrain, or other harrowing circumstances; and

WHEREAS, Alaska’s first responders are a vital part of our communities as they risk their own lives and safety to provide crucial service in times of desperate need; and 

WHEREAS, individuals, both career and volunteer, including police, firefighters, emergency medical responders, search and rescue professionals, military personnel, as well as entire organizations come together in emergencies to provide services that often make the difference between life and death; and

WHEREAS, we specifically commend all Alaskan first responders and wildland firefighters, as well as those who travelled from all over the United States and Canada this summer to answer the call when wildfires ravaged millions of acres Alaska, and engulfed dozens of Alaskans’ homes; and

WHEREAS, we greatly appreciate the sacrifice of first responders and their selfless dedication to serve and protect Alaskans every day.

NOW THEREFORE, I, Bill Walker, GOVERNOR OF THE STATE OF ALASKA, do hereby proclaim September 27, 2015 as: 

First Responder Appreciation Day in Alaska, and encourage all Alaskans to recognize the vital role first responders play in our state, and express appreciation for the selfless service of the first responders in our local communities.
