Martin County Hospital District had their 3rd Annual Back the Badge event yesterday in their front parking lot where they served free hamburgers and hot dogs for all first responders and their families.
"We do this every year about this time, just to honor law enforcement, first responders, EMS providers, firefighters, and everybody in that neighborhood," said Rance Ramsey, CEO of Martin County Hospital.
This year, MCHD decided to take donations from the community and held a raffle to help raise money for the Martin County Sheriff and City Law Enforcement departments.
"We just really appreciate everyone out there, what they do to serve our communities. Not only here in Martin Counties, but Howard, Midland, Glasscock - all the local areas," said Ramsey. "We just really appreciate their service and we're just trying to show our appreciation for what they do everyday."
