On International Firefighters’ Day, and all year long, we’re sharing the stories of the heroic first responders who help keep our communities safer every day
Whether it’s a small kitchen fire or a fully engulfed structure, or a fender bender or a car sinking into a river, firefighters respond to it all, selflessly rushing toward dangerous and unpredictable situations to help protect their communities. To mark International Firefighters’ Day, celebrated annually on May 4, we’re highlighting the heroism and bravery exhibited by these First Responders.
At OnStar, we value our relationships with First Responders across the country as we work to provide added peace of mind to Members. That’s why we spent time with folks from a variety of firehouses to hear their stories firsthand, in their own words. Firefighters, EMTs, engineers, chiefs and everyone in between — each person in a firehouse plays a crucial role in keeping both their fellow firefighters and those in the surrounding area safer.
