‘As 1’ Community Kickball game bring first responders and community together
CHATTANOOGA, Tennessee (WDEF)- Chattanooga Fire Department, Chattanooga Police Department, Hamilton EMS, and other Chattanooga organizations united as one with the community for a competitive bonding event.
It was supposed to be a kickball game, but the weather didn’t cooperate so they played dodgeball, limbo, and shot the basketball around.
CPD, CFD, and the mayor’s office, all join together with Chattanooga residents as one community. To show how they are one community, first responders are creating a bond with the community before something possibly goes wrong.
“We don’t wanna show up when things get bad. We’re being really proactive and aggressively about coming around and developing positive relationships before we get to a scene where things are just crazy. We want you to know that you can trust us and that you’re safe before we even show up,” said Allen Green, CFD.
