I cannot think of any reason why anyone would not appreciate the life-saving work that our emergency services do daily.
The brave men and women who risk their own lives to try and keep our families and us safe, deserve recognition.
I am sure that most of you reading this appreciate this work and the fantastic job that our emergency services do, day in day out.
Especially during this pandemic.
We, the public, are told that, to keep ourselves safe, then we must avoid contact with other people.
But the remarkable men and women who serve in the emergency services do not get this choice.
Their job is to help people who, without a doubt, already have the virus.
The Personal Protective Equipment which they are issued with will (hopefully) lessen the chances of them getting COVID.
But, for the men and women who respond to 999 calls, then it probably won’t give them 100% protection.
And now, a group of just under 2,000 volunteers have decided to show the emergency services just how much they appreciate the risks taken by the amazing men and women of the police, ambulance, fire & SAR services.
The group, called ‘Hit The Heroes With Random Acts Of Kindness‘ leave various ‘thank you’ notes and gifts on emergency vehicles before reporting their ‘hit’ to the rest of the group.
As you would expect, the ‘hits’ are not carried out when anyone is in the vehicle.
And these volunteers are not looking for praise either.
They ‘hit’ the emergency vehicle, and then leave.
So when the emergency worker returns to their vehicle, then they are greeted with a token of the general publics gratitude for what they are doing.
Because of the virus, crews are taking extra precautions with the ‘gifts’ and notes which are left.
But, judging by the posts in the group, they are helping to raise the morale of our hardworking and dedicated emergency services personnel.
