Lexington County plans Sirens for Solidarity to recognize first responders
Lexington, SC (Paul Kirby) – Lexington County is planning a Sirens for Solidarity to first responders as our communities rally together to support each other and beat the COVID-19 coronavirus. In a post on their social media page they said they want all of Lexington County’s residents to know that they are still here to continue providing the highest levels of service possible during this unprecedented time.
To ensure you know that all those police officers, EMTs, 911 telecommunicators, and firefighters are still out there 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year, all emergency services and law enforcement vehicles throughout the County that are not in the process of responding to a call will, from a stationary location, sound their siren in a salute to everyone who’s on the frontline battling the pandemic and also the community that supports them in so many ways. This Sirens for Solidarity will happen on Friday, April 3, at 7 p.m.
This is being done through a strong partnership between county responders and their municipal partners. Many of the police and firefighters of the cities and towns in Lexington County will participate as well. This means that just about everyone from Cayce and West Columbia to Batesburg-Leesville will be able to hear the sirens and salute the brave men and women who report to work every day, putting themselves in danger every time they answer the call for help.
In closing, a spokesman for Lexington County said, “Thank you for your continuing patience and support of your first responders! We could not do what we do without you, the amazing residents of our County. If you call 911, we will come.”
