Homeland Security & First Responders

Ohio’s first responders, fire fighters, and law enforcement officials put their lives on the line every day to protect our communities and our families. They run toward danger when everyone else runs away. They are the heart of our small towns and big cities, and they are representative of a strong middle class. Yet reduced funding and increased demand for public safety has meant that it is critical that we step up to help our first responders carry out their essential lifesaving duties. We must continue to ensure that they have the resources, training, and support needed to safely perform these critical jobs and protect our communities.
