Hundreds of first responders working in all three disciplines lead a caravan of more than 80 vehicles to our healthcare institutions to thank the men and women who are putting their lives on the line every day during this pandemic.
Coordinated by the CCPD and the Camden County Association of Chiefs of Police, this parade for health care workers included members of the Camden Fire Department, Camden EMS squads and several other agencies who were included to show their gratitude to the doctors, nurses and other medical professionals who are working in the hospitals, mobile test sites, clinics and urgent care facilities to fight the novel coronavirus.
“This is the least we can do for these heroes who are putting their lives on the line to wage war against this insidious, silent killer,” Chief Joe Wysocki said. “We can’t thank them enough for what they are doing every day for our community and the tireless time and energy they are putting into this monumental fight.”
President of the Camden County Police Chiefs Association, Dan Cormaney, talked about the importance of the procession.
“In the fight against COVID-19 our healthcare workers are on the front lines, saving lives everyday while risking their own personal safety and welfare,” Cormaney said. “The doctors and nurses that are working tirelessly through this pandemic deserve our support and appreciation, not just today but every single day of this unprecedented battle to save lives. This small display of appreciation does not begin to come close to the thanks that they deserve.”
