DESCRIPTION

1st Responder News is the first newspaper to cover emergency service personnel on such an intimate basis. We give detailed coverage to the rescues, the events, the promotions, the problems, and the triumphs of each and every department in our coverage area. Many of our correspondents and photographers are firefighters and EMT’s themselves, ensuring that our news coverage will always have that “insider angle.” There is no better way to reach 45,000 first responders in each zone we cover with such a personal touch.
