OXNARD, Calif. - A few years ago Congress designated Oct. 28 as National First Responders Day.

Oxnard Police Chief Scott Whitney said, "It is really a day to thank and appreciate firefighters, paramedics, police officers, those first responders that rush in when there is an emergency."

First responders say they don't do it for thank-you notes or baked goods, but they appreciate the recognition from the people in the communities they serve.
