Many of the patients and staff viewed the parade from the windows as the fire trucks made their way around the block.

A lot of smiles … I’m not sure whether you got pictures but we had patients and staff in windows looking out watching the parade go by. I think it really was encouraging.”

Danville City Fire Departments Captain Marvin Jones and Fire Chief David Coffey both have loved nurses and understand the hours of hard work they have, and continue to put in during this trying time.

My daughter is an RN in LA, Cedar Sinai Hospital, so I was really happy to be a part of this whole process and it gave me goosebumps just to see all the fire trucks lined up.”
