Now and then, the safety and integrity of our communities are threatened. It could be from a natural disaster or from unruly elements who rear their ugly heads ever so often.

Our communities survive these onslaughts because of the heroics of those among us who rush towards scenes of danger while most of us scamper for safety – the first-aid workers, firefighters, paramedics, police officers, and so on.

Needless to say, every community as a whole owes its survival to the first responders serving them. And we all should be grateful to them for keeping our communities together, oftentimes at great risk to their lives.
