The First Responders Foundation has been very, very busy this year! We have lots of people who have volunteered their time to make sure that these events go on without a hitch! We have four events in thirty days coming up, all created to bring you fun and entertainment and to raise awareness and funds for our police and fire departments in Omaha.
Boy Scouts and Girls Scouts have always worked hard to get their badges. For as long as we can remember, Scouts have been reaching out to the Omaha Police Department to work with officers to meet the requirements to get a law enforcement badge. With so many Scouts randomly coming to the police for this badge, the Omaha Police Department (OPD) started hosting an event about 12 years ago called “Scout Day.”
On April 21, Nebraska Methodist College hosted the 2nd Annual Community Health Fair. In addition to the First Responders Foundation, many other community organizations were onsite to serve as resources for the public, including the Omaha Police Department and Omaha Fire Department.
There were health screenings for blood pressure, hearing, height, weight, BMI, blood sugar, cholesterol, and more. The event also offered free food, drinks, raffle prizes, giveaways, and fun activities.
