Everyone Is A First Responder

Jagermeister and USFRA First Responder Panama City FL. Event

Since the U. S. First Responders Association is based in Panama City, this disaster was very personal. I am in Texas but several USFRA volunteer staff (including our CEO Fyre Walker), many members, and their loved ones were impacted personally and professionally by the storm. Jägermeister wanted to support and thank first responders  donating over 400 backpacks along with $25,000 to USFRA for the First Responder Thank You event held Dec 11, 2018 at the Bay County Sheriff's Office.

Panama Cities surrounding communities like Lynn Haven, Springfield, Callaway, Mexico Beach and others were so devastated by the almost Category 5 hurricane (and some tornadoes), there was no place to have items shipped to, assembled and stored. So Bill and I had everything shipped to Texas so we could bring backpacks to Florida in our motor-home. The plan was to meet a few people from  Jägermeister at BCSO for some photos, then hand out backpacks to the first 400 Panama City area first responders and gift bags to first 15 K9s that stopped by.

 Allergan has partnered with USFRA to support America’s Heroes with In-Kind Donations of REFRESH® Products through Dec 2017.  "We are pleased that we can offer comfort to first responders working in smoky and dusty conditions with quality eye care products," said Brent Saunders, CEO, Allergan. "REFRESH® is the number one doctor recommended brand of artificial tears, and we hope this philanthropic program will provide much-needed relief to the men and women who keep us safe." Being in an environment with conditions that are severely dry, dusty and windy may result in development of Dry Eye symptoms.[1] REFRESH OPTIVE® Advanced Lubricant Eye Drops, also available in a preservative-free formula, provide long-lasting relief through an innovative, triple-action formula.
