The Oakdale Leader - - NEWS -

With Septem­ber 11th just weeks away we re­mem­ber those who lost their lives on that fate­ful day, our de­voted first re­spon­ders. Our coun­try is changed for­ever be­cause of Septem­ber 11th, 2001. As we ap­proach 9/11 our thoughts turn to the brave men and women who each day risk their lives keep­ing our com­mu­nity safe! A day in the life of a first re­spon­der is filled with a wide range of emo­tions, de­vo­tion to their loved ones, pride for their cho­sen pro­fes­sion, an­tic­i­pa­tion for what they may face, each day is a dif­fer­ent day in the life of a first re­spon­der. They have tremen­dous knowl­edge and life-sav­ing skills, put to use daily. Our com­mu­ni­ties couldn’t do with­out them!
