ST. GEORGE – Southern Utah has its heroes, many of whom are never much recognized, but the American Red Cross joined by state and local officials paid tribute to some of them at a reception in St. George Thursday. “No Filter Show” Co-hosts Paul Ford and Grady Sinclair enjoyed the lunch but more so enjoyed a welcome into some of the recognized heroes’ homes where they shared a bit of their stories and a lot of heart.
“I believe that the paramedic’s job isn’t finished when the uniform comes off,” Adam Phillips said.
It’s about empowering children in their time of need when they’re not able to help themselves, B.A.C.A. President J-Dawg said.
“As an EMT, you come into people’s lives, usually as a stranger, at one of their darkest, most troubling or difficult times,” Enterprise Mayor Lee Bracken, long known as the city’s own personal 911, said.
That was a sneak peek. Join us for more in this “Local Heroes Edition,” Episode 38 of the “No Filter Show.”
