The holiday season is upon us and while many will enjoy time off and time spent with loved ones, there are those who have to work. For those who sacrifice their holidays to serve and save lives, we here at Rave Mobile Safety want to say thank you. We cannot overlook the immeasurable sacrifice of all the emergency responders and workers who help those in emergency situations over the holidays.

Thank you 9-1-1

The first first responders, dispatchers and 9-1-1 call takers, sacrifice their time and holiday’s to help people through what are often the worst experiences of their lives. Guiding people through emergencies and knowing what help to send and where to send it, these men and women work tirelessly to help those in need.  The holiday season often brings a rise in domestic situations and 9-1-1 dispatchers are assisting in these situations with those involved and simultaneously communicating with first responders being sent into these emergencies.

Thank you EMS

EMS workers walk into situations where medical attention is immediately needed and have very little information about the victim. They provide medical assistance outside of hospitals, often times working while transporting people.  Many EMS workers have shared that the hardest part of responding to these medical emergencies is when the situation hits close to home and working during the holidays can provide annual reminders of the hardest part of these men and women’s jobs.

Thank you Firefighters

The risk of home fires increases during the holiday season due to Christmas trees, candles, decorations, and frayed wires from old lights. Due to the nature of Christmas tree fires the likelihood of fatalities is five times higher than other house fires.  These firefighters give up their holidays at home to save the lives and homes of others.

Thank you Police

Conflicts arise around the holidays and stress levels soar resulting in police officers continually responding to calls of domestic disturbances. Every day these men and women in blue respond to some of the hardest and most violent moments of another person’s life, all to serve and protect. They give up the possible peace of their own homes to step into the chaos of someone else’s.

Working in emergency response comes with many burdens and annual reminders of some of these workers worst days. Thank you to all emergency workers who sacrifice time with their families and memories to help others and save lives.  

Thank you and happy holiday’s from all of us here at Rave.
