VALLEY HOME 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!
