First Responders Thanksgiving

Join Marc Cox and give thanks to area first responders! We’ll be recognizing Police Officers, Firefighters, and EMT's throughout the month of November. We’re wanting to raise awareness, support, and say Thank You to area first responders for the difficult job they do every day by putting their lives on the line to serve and protect our communities.

To show your support, you can donate or volunteer with Responder Rescue.

This local charity provides assistance; emotional, tangible or monetary, to any area first responders, who have been injured, become ill or suffered a traumatic situation after all other resources have been exhausted. Each day, thousands of police officers, firefighters, and EMS workers strive to keep each and every one of us safe. While we often see these men and women as daily heroes, they still face injury, illness and traumatic events; on and off duty. Unfortunately, there is only so much their insurance companies and the departments they work for can do to help. Responder Rescue, a 501(c)(3) organization, was established in 2009 by a St. Louis metro area fire Captain who saw this unmet need. As a result, Responder Rescue's goal is to help provide the additional financial and emotional assistance to these men and women.
