For years, Congress has considered designating a national day of recognition for First Responders but has not been successful. By creating a day of recognition for First Responders, citizens across the country will be reminded annually of the sacrifices police, fire and EMS make to keep us all safe.
HBI client, Hooters, is passionate about honoring First Responders and has sponsored apetitionto garner awareness from Congress. They have teamed up with Andrew Collier, brother of slain MIT police officer Sean Collier who lost his life protecting his community during the Boston marathon bombing tragedy, the National Association of Police Organizations, Thankyoufirstresponders.org and the National Black Police Association, among others, to lead this effort to Congress.
Together we respectfully ask that you consider joining us in this effort by signing the petition and sharing it with friends/family/colleagues and on social media.
Hooters has served thousands of free meals to active military and veterans but our servicemen and women are not the only heroes in our communities. Hooters believes our Nation’s First Responders also deserve credit for their selfless work. First Responders are an integral part of our community, brave citizens who give their lives to protect and serve Americans every day.
Can we count on you to sign and share the petition?
