Children leave encouraging messages for Schuylkill County first responders


SCHUYLKILL COUNTY (WBRE/WYOU-TV) A few emergency departments in Schuylkill County were surprised with supportive messages written outside their stations. 

A group of kids wrote words of encouragement in chalk outside the Pottsville and Schuylkill Haven Schuylkill EMS stations.

The notes said “Be safe” “Thanks” and called our first responders heroes in the drawings.

The chalk messages aren’t the only kindness Schuylkill EMS has seen from the public.
The station also received food donations from people who want to show their appreciation to the local first responders.

Patrick Moran, the education and outreach coordinator of Schuylkill EMS said
“really the crews needed it. The crews are kind of stressed. And strained. And this was definitely a real boost to them. And a positive thing for them.”
