The law firm of Console & Hollawell of Market Street, is pleased to announce a contest to honor local law enforcement, fire squad, and EMT/paramedic unit personnel throughout the South Jersey and Philadelphia Metro regions. In the “Real Heroes Wear Badges, Not Capes” project, the firm invites individuals, businesses, and organizations to nominate the first responders who put their lives on the line to protect others.
“Police officers, firefighters, and EMT/paramedic units are the first on the scene to help seriously injured accident victims,” said the firm’s managing partner Richard P. Console, Jr. “Their intervention often makes the difference between life and death. Selfless first responders are true heroes, and they deserve recognition for their work.”
One law enforcement officer, firefighter, or EMT/paramedic will be named as the contest winner and will receive a cash prize of $500 and a (monetary) donation in the amount of $500 to the local cause of his or her choice. Additionally, every nominee will be considered for inclusion in a “Real Heroes Wear Badges, Not Capes” gallery to honor local first responders. Nominations are due by Friday, December 13, 2013. Nominate your Happening Heroes today, both for this campaign and for a chance to be featured on Philly Happening.
