RENO, Nev. ( & KRNV) -- Emergency responders are being honored Thursday at the third Annual Commendation Awards Ceremony. These are the brave men and women who were first on the scene to tragedies that happened right here in our own backyard.

25 paramedics, registered nurses and emergency medical technicians from REMSA who performed various acts of heroism in the last year, including those at the Sparks Middle School and Renown shootings in 2013, will be honored today.

These men and women rushed to the scene to take care of the injured, some of these responders came on to the Sparks Middle School campus back October 21st not knowing if there was more than one shooter to treat and help two students who were injured.

Why is it Remsa only gets recognized for incidents in Northern Nevada? What about other agencies? What about all the agencies who responded to the Carson City IHOP shooting? I don't ever remember hearing about recognition for that. Maybe there should be awards for the whole area for first responders. I believe things happen all over the area, not just in Remsas district.
