Background
After the Boston Marathon bombing in 2013, police officer Sean Collier was shot and murdered, while responding to reports of a disturbance. In his honor, his brother Andrew Collier fought to start a movement of support for the country’s first responders, with the help of the All Clear Foundation.
The movement grew in popularity with those who wanted to pay their respects to the people who do this dangerous work.
On May 18, 2017, Senators Elizabeth Warren and Tom Cotton proposed the establishment of National First Responders Day as an official observance. It was only on June 7, 2019, that the resolution passed in the Senate, designating October 28 as National First Responders Day.
