In our communities, there are groups of people that we can count on when we need someone the most. A person who is there for us during the unthinkable. Very often this person is a stranger until we need them and that could be the first time we realize they have always been our neighbor.

The Wolf wants to honor the men and women who run in when others must run out. The people who are there on cold rainy nights or hot humid days on the side of our Hudson Valley roadways. They give of themselves daily including weekends, holidays, and the middle of the night. They are there helping so we can get through what could be the toughest thing we have ever experienced.

Nominate a First Responder to Be a Member of the Wolf Den of Heroes

Car accidents, house fires, or the injuries which occur when we are just out having fun, all these situations are when we encounter a great group of hardworking people we call first responders. They are firemen both volunteer and paid. They are ambulance drivers, paramedics, and EMTs. They are police officers, security guards, and more. They are the people who come to our aid during a crisis and give their time to help others.
