While folks around the country spend time with family and friends this Thanksgiving, even through altered plans during the COVID-19 pandemic, many emergency responders will celebrate the holiday working.
Some might eat snacks from a convenience store as turkey and stuffing is served to those whom police and EMS workers have sworn to protect.
It is images of those types of situations that inspired Plum resident Dave Johnson to ensure his borough officers and paramedics get the type of meal they deserve on Thanksgiving day. This year marks a decade of his tradition.
“Both emergency services are here to perform a duty and are here 24/7,” Johnson said. “It’s my honor to do it. These guys are a staple to the community. Doing something small like that really means a lot. I look forward to it every year.”
