Thanking first responders

One of the many hand-made signs springing up around the area thanking police, firefighters and other first responders involved in the battle against the blazes ravaging the North Bay.

Justin-Siena High School will host “Feed The Firsts,” an event to feed and celebrate the many firefighters, medics, law enforcement officers and utility workers on the front lines battling the blazes ravaging the region.

The event will be Sunday from 11 a.m.—4 p.m. at the school, 4026 Maher St., Napa.

All emergency personnel are invited.

“We know that not everyone or even most of the many first responders will be able to stop by on Sunday. Some may be resting or with their families, others will doubtless be still serving and protecting our community,” the school wrote in announcing the event. “With this in mind, excess funds will be used to purchase Napa dining and beverage gift cards to add to handmade Thank You cards.”

More than 7,000 firefighters from all over the world are working the fires in the region.
