MARQUETTE — Brookridge Heights Assisted Living and Memory Care facility brought a few of their residents to meet with the local fire department.
The group came to the Marquette Fire Department to help give back and stay connected with the community. They even came with a gift basket with a great quote on it saying “Real Heroes Don’t Wear Capes,” in honor of the service they provide to the community.
This coincides with the anniversary of a day that many firefighters gave their lives to help rescue people during the attacks on September Eleventh in 2001. The residents and care givers wanted to come out and give their thanks for all the sacrifice these men and women offer every day.
“Our Service Men and Women in our EMS, Fire Department and Police, they are our unsung heroes here in the community,” said Director of Marketing and Sales for Brookridge Heights, Jennifer Huetter. “This is just a great opportunity to recognize them and say thank you for everything that they do.”
National Assisted Living week gave a reason for Brookridge Heights to celebrate the people they work with and the residents they have the opportunity to work with.
