Also that “since the tragic events of September 11, 2001, firefighters and police officers are no longer taken for granted…Volunteer firefighters make up the vast majority of firefighters in the state and deserve to be recognized for their willingness to faithfully provide courageous service, usually without monetary compensation…That I, Asa Hutchinson…declare January 27, 2020 Firefighter Recognition Day.”
