Today our hearts mourn for the losses and critical injuries experienced by our Lubbock First Responder Family.

27-year-old Officer Nicholas Reyna served with the Lubbock Police Department for one year. Following the academy, he served on patrol during the day shift.

39-year-old Lieutenant/Paramedic Eric Hill served with Lubbock Fire Rescue for ten years. Eric had promoted to lieutenant in July 2019 and was stationed at Fire Station 10B.

The injured firefighter who remains in critical condition is 30-year-old Firefighter/Paramedic Matt Dawson. He has been with the department for five years. Matt Dawson is stationed at Fire Station 2A.

It is not possible to express the hurt we all feel from the death our own officer, and the death and injuries to our firefighter brothers, and the grief of their families and friends.

What is Make It Purple? What is Fallen First Responder Awareness Month?

TO HONOR AND REMEMBER THE FALLEN

There are many brave individuals who have decided to serve their communities by protecting them through law enforcement, fire protection, and emergency medical care. These brave men and women put their lives on the line every day in order to protect the citizens in their communities. All too often their lives are cut short by making the ultimate sacrifice. Some battle with medical illnesses or mental health issues because of exposure and end up losing their battle. Too many families and loved ones have been left to deal with the tragic outcome of a life cut short. While we never want to forget the sacrifices that have been made, we want to dedicate a month where we purposefully honor those lives lost and their families and friends that they have left behind.

We wear purple on May 10th (or any other day in May) to show our support and awareness for those that have died, those that are serving, and the families that they love. We chose purple because it's a color that is on memorial bunting that is commonly used during first responder funerals.

Join us this Thursday, May 10th, and wear purple to show your support! We would love to see your photos. You can post them on our Make It Purple page (https://www.facebook.com/makeitpurple) or by sending them to us in a message.
