Law enforcement officers, fire fighters and first responders of East Tennessee were honored today in Knoxville with an event that was hosted by Rep. Jason Zachary of the 14th District. 

Rep. Zachary said first responders serve and protect daily and should get the recognition they deserve.

The event was open to the public for residents to stop by to say hello and thank you. Fun gifts were given to smiling Knoxville police officers and first responders. 

“They keep our community safe and keep our community in the condition that it’s in because of their service to our community and so they’re worthy of an honor.”
