FIRST RESPONDERS - THANK YOU

KARSP has completed phase 2 of recognizing, and showing our appreciation to first responders in Kalamazoo County.  Past, present, and future Presidents of KARSP presented the Portage Police and Public Safety and Fire Departments with a Recognition Certificate and Cookies for their department.


First responders are individuals with specialized training, who are among the first to arrive, and provide assistance in case of an emergency.  In the city of Portage, for example, they handle fire, accidents, emergency medical, and police issues to name a few.

We thank the men and women who keep our community safe!  These are the people who run towards an emergency, rather than away.  We appreciate their dedication, service, and hard work.


Here is Portage Officer, Jessica Smith, Sally Roach, JoAnn Lynch, Julie Devers, and Officer Craig Begeman
