Denton County is blessed to have heroes all over our county. The men and women who wear the badge of firefighter and law enforcement officer deserve to be honored with appreciation and respect from each of us. They rush to our aid when we call for help. They protect our lives and property, many times disregarding their own personal safety. They answer our calls to 911 and send help. They speak with our youth and encourage them to do the right thing. I ask all Double Oak and Denton County residents, when you have an opportunity, to please tell a firefighter and law enforcement officer thank you for the job they do.
