Emergency Personnel Light Up the Streets with Hope

Emergency personnel lit up the streets last night in a sign of strength of hope for everyone during the COVID-19 outbreak.

Fire departments, along with police and EMS, turned on their emergency lights and traveled the streets of their communities as residents came out of their homes and waved – a moving moment for many during this isolating time.

The Holy Cross/North Buena Vista Fire Department was one of those departments participating, sharing a video live on Facebook as the trucks prepared to leave the fire station. Assistant Fire Chief Robby Errthum heard about it through social media and thought it was a good idea.

Many of our community fire departments have posted videos or photos from last night on their Facebook pages.
