America’s first responders are on the front lines working to save lives and protect communities across the nation. On September 14, BCB Bank presents Bayonne’s 1st Annual First Responder’s Day to celebrate and honor career and volunteer firefighters, police, emergency medical technicians, and paramedic workers. The celebration is open to the public and will be held from 1-6 pm at the 16th Street Park in Bayonne featuring local food trucks, inflatables, children’s games, music, a beer garden, face painting and demonstrations.
Thomas M. Coughlin, President and Chief Executive Officer stated “We hope that everyone will join BCB Bank for a day of family friendly activities to honor our inspiring first responders who put their lives on the line every day to keep us safe. As Bayonne’s community bank, we’re proud of our incredible community and its long standing tradition of service. All of us at BCB want to build an annual tradition to celebrate the courage and strength of these exceptional public servants.”
Participants include the Bayonne Police Department, Bayonne Fire Department, McCabe Ambulance Service, Coast Guard, FBI, State Police, Hudson County Sheriff’s Office, and The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.
“As we celebrate Bayonne’s 150th Anniversary, I think this event is a great opportunity to come together as a community to personally thank all of the dedicated folks that are helping keep us safe. Each and every individual contributes to the vitality of Bayonne and all the unique strengths we enjoy. As the City continues to grow and thrive, I hope that this event sets the bar for Hudson County and the state.” said Mayor James Davis.
