The Gaithersburg-Germantown Chamber of Commerce (GGCC) has hosted its 29th Annual Public Safety Awards Breakfast honoring men and women who provide public safety in the Upcounty. A total of 39 public safety officials from several jurisdictions were recognized and awarded a citation from the Maryland State Senate and Congressman David Trone.
The awards ceremony took place on Friday, June 14 at 7:30am at the Montgomery County Agricultural Center in Gaithersburg.The program with details on each award winner can be seen in the links above. A link to the photo album from the event is available here.
Per GGCC: “Police officers, firefighters, and EMS workers are always on standby, ready to step in whenever necessary, often sacrificing time with their families to ensure ours are safe. Their contributions to the community are immeasurable, their acts of selflessness filling volumes.
Most public servants didn’t enter their professions seeking heroism; they simply wanted to serve and protect. Yet, these men and women are true heroes, dedicating their lives to law enforcement and public safety. Today, we honor 39 officials for their commitment to preserving public safety. Words alone cannot express the gratitude we feel for their selfless bravery and heroism, which make our community thrive.
On behalf of the Gaithersburg-Germantown Chamber, Paul Davis Restoration & Remodeling, The Montgomery County Agricultural Center, and the Gaithersburg and Germantown communities, we sincerely appreciate and congratulate all involved in Public Safety! Thank you for making a difference in our lives and our community.”
