Guardians of the Good

Tis the season for giving!

Chief Hebbe and his wife have teamed up with Farmington Fire Chief Dave Burke and donated $3,000 to establish the Guardians of the Good Fund – a Pay It Forward initiative. First responders frequently encounter hard-working individuals who’ve been faced with adversity but continue to push through obstacles to provide for their families and/or others, all while maintaining a positive attitude. These are the people who often go unnoticed because they remain silent through their struggles.

Do you know someone like this? We’d like to learn more about them.
