Five Alarm appreciation lunch honors local firefighters and emergency medical services crews

Cobb EMC’s seventh annual Five Alarm, an appreciation luncheon for firefighters and emergency medical services crews, honored more than 80 first responders across the electric cooperative’s five-county service area. 

“Our local public service personnel make our community a better place for all of us,” said Leslie Thompson, director of member and public relations at Cobb EMC. “Each year we look forward to honoring them and making sure they know that there’s a community behind them who is thankful for them every day.”

The event kicked off with the singing of God Bless America and the National Anthem performed by Christina Sidlow-Doud. Attendees enjoyed char-grilled steaks and door prizes from the Ronnie Thames Foundation & Fire Service Plus, NAFECO, Bennett Fire Products, Gloves Inc. and Norred & Associates.
