WASHINGTON, DC – Last night, Congressman Steny H. Hoyer (MD-05) attended and made brief remarks at the 30th annual National Fire & Emergency Services Dinner. As co-chair of the Congressional Fire Services Caucus, Congressman Hoyer joined the Congressional Fire Services Institute in paying tribute to the dedication and commitment of our nation’s one million firefighters and emergency services personnel.
“I was pleased to join in honoring our hardworking firefighters and emergency personnel at the 30th annual National Fire & Emergency Services Dinner,” said Congressman Hoyer. “I join in paying tribute to the brave first responders who serve their communities and keep their neighbors safe across the country, including those in Maryland’s Fifth District. Just recently, we saw a group of Maryland fire fighters and emergency medical technicians in my district respond to the shooting at Great Mills High School with great professionalism and courage. I am immensely grateful for their service to our community.”
“Serving as co-chair of the Congressional Fire Services Caucus is one of my greatest honors and responsibilities,” continued Congressman Hoyer. “These brave men and women put their lives on the line each day for their neighbors, and we must continue to do all that we can to ensure our firefighters and emergency responders have the tools they need to perform their duties, as well as keep the faith with the families of the fallen. I will continue to work with my colleagues in Congress to ensure we do.”
