FIRST RESPONDERS HONOR PARK

The Park is dedicated to honor and remember First Responders, primarily those who have served in the Tri-County Region of Steuben, Schuyler and Chemung Counties of NY. They are the first to respond to emergencies to save life, limb, and property from harm.

PARK FEATURES

The Tri-County First Responders Honor Park features engraved pavers in walkways and honor beds containing pavers honoring and remembering first responders. There are four honor beds, one each for firefighters, police, medical and rescue/others, respectively. This park honors those who have or are still serving as full-time, part-time or volunteer first responders. The four honor beds contain engraved brick pavers honoring individuals and teams (also included are assistants and deputies).

On Sept. 11, 2001, thousands of first responders heroically rushed to the scene and saved tens of thousands of lives. More than 400 of those first responders did not make it out alive.

My heroes are those who risk their lives every day to protect our world and make it a better place – police, firefighters and members of our armed forces.
