ONONDOGA COUNTY, N.Y.-- First responders from across the county were honored with Legacy awards from Loretto on Wednesday.
Five fire departments, five law enforcement agencies, and four emergency medical technician groups were recognized for their hard work throughout this year.
The departments help provide safety,security, as well as compassion towards the elder community. Loretto says the organizations are part of a bigger picture.
"We consider the first responders to be part of our team because they respond to so many different emergencies. We have health car emergencies, natural disasters, and without them our work wouldn't be possible," said Steve Volza, Loretto's senior vice president.
Time Warner Cable, the parent company of YNN, was a proud sponsor of the event.
