PRESCOTT – Nevada County first responders were recognized Thursday with a fish fry dinner at the Stokes Center.

The dinner was hosted by the Prescott Lions Club in appreciation for what these men and women do for the people of the county. Penny Lynch, club president, thanked the first responders for the work they do and welcomed everyone to the dinner.

A “missing man” table was set up to remember those who have served and are no longer with us.

Paula Ledbetter thanked those who worked the shooting incident at Prescott High School on April 1, expressing gratitude for their response time and coming to the aid of the community when it occurred. “You never think that it would happen in our little town, but it did and I am very proud that our police officers, ambulance staff, firefighters, state polcie and county officers were there to protect us from harm.”

Skits were done showing how EMTs with the Nevada County Ambulance Service work, and how difficult it is for dispatchers who monitor multiple frequencies simultaneously and are in communication with several officers and agencies at once.

When the skits were done the first responders enjoyed a dinner of fried catfish, hambugers and hot dogs.
