Trezevant Holds First Responder’s Appreciation Day 
Trezevant, a local senior living community located at 177 N. Highland, held an event celebrating our local first responders on Friday, June 18. The annual First Responder’s Appreciation Day honored the Memphis Police Department and Memphis Fire Department. Among the many attendees were City of Memphis Mayor Jim Strickland, Shelby County Mayor Lee Harris and Memphis’ new Chief of Police, Cerelyn “C.J.” Davis. All three welcomed the crowd and shared appreciation for the first responders who keep our citizens safe.
“It’s one of our favorite events of the year,” says Rinnie Wood, fitness director at Trezevant. “Both residents and staff eagerly await the chance to thank those who protect and serve us day in and day out.”
Trezevant residents and staff were able to visit with the first responders and learn from the TACT unit, bike patrol, robot team, K-9 unit, mounted patrol unit, as well as members of the Memphis Fire Department. Many first responders from the Tillman precinct of the Memphis Police Department and Fire Station #17 attended the event held on Trezevant's campus. Refreshments were available for all. Trezevant’s own Reverend Barbara Kirk-Norris led a blessing of the badges to provide hope, encouragement and protection to those who serve their local community.
