CONCORD — Police Chief Joseph O’Connor is pleased to announce that the Concord Police and Fire Departments will be joined by neighboring public safety agencies when they pay a special visit to Emerson Hospital tomorrow to show their support for healthcare providers during National Nurses Week.
Friday, May 8, at 1:15 p.m.
Emerson Hospital, 133 Old Road to Nine Acre Corner, Concord
The Concord Police and Fire Departments, which are organizing the event, will be among several neighboring police and fire departments, EMS and EMA departments and organizations throughout the region participating in the event. The drive-by show of appreciation will include first responders from Acton, Lincoln, Bedford, Sudbury, Littleton, Maynard, Boxborough, Massachusetts State Police and the Department of Corrections.
First responder agencies will be staging at Papa Razzi, 768 Elm St., before beginning the rally at 1 p.m. The timing of the rally is designed to coincide with the presence of multiple hospital shifts, ensuring as many care providers and administrators as possible have a chance to see the display of appreciation.
“We thought there was no more appropriate way to celebrate National Nurses Week than to set aside time to show our appreciation for all healthcare providers who are confronting COVID-19 head-on,” said Concord Police Lt. Kevin Monahan, who has led the effort to organize the drive-by. “We’re all excited to show our support for the work doctors, nurses and all providers are doing every day, especially now during the pandemic.”
