The COVID-19 pandemic has called upon Westchester County’s heroes – our doctors, nurses, police, firefighters and EMS workers – to respond from the front lines to an unprecedented health crisis where many lives are at stake. During this challenging time, Westchester County Executive George Latimer is calling on all residents to say thank you, and share a message of hope and inspiration for our brave first responders, who put their lives on the line each day to protect us.

Parents and kids can create artwork, post a picture, or record a short video using the hashtags #MyWestchester and #WCThankyou. It is an easy way for the entire family to get involved, and share a Westchester County Thank You with the people who are facing the pandemic head-on.

Latimer said: “These people are working double shifts, they are working voluntary extra time and putting themselves in harm’s way. We really do know that they are out there trying to save our lives. And let me give them a Westchester County Thank you, because we appreciate everything you do for us.”
