Public Safety Appreciation Dinner
Public Safety Appreciation Dinner is one of Peace Islands Institute’s annual projects. This dinner honors first responders across fire, police, and EMS departments, and also thanks government employees that work in the fields of homeland security and public safety for their hard work and dedication. Awards will be given to distinguished members of our community to recognize them for their tireless efforts, outstanding service, and sacrifices.
