Duty Runs Deep

Whatever The Call. They Answer.



Duty Runs Deep

When you ask them, they’ll downplay their contribution.

‘Anyone would have done it.’
‘I didn’t even think about it.’
‘I was just doing my duty.’

The truth is that doing something courageous is a choice,
and not one we would all make.

When someone in front of you is in need,
and behind you is everything you love — your family,
your friends, your life.

Would you choose to go forward, to help?
To put your life on the line?
To keep your oath?
To fulfill your duty?

Whatever the call. They Answer.

Duty Runs Deep.

Hear The Stories Of Courage

Public safety is more than a job; it’s not about a paycheck; it’s not even merely about the career. It is a calling. And we salute our first responders who answer that call fearlessly and relentlessly. No matter how often that call comes – no matter how long and grueling the shift, no matter how severe the danger – they answer. We’re forever indebted to all the untold good that first responders do.


Now more than ever, those stories need to be heard.
