U.S. Rep. Jeff Duncan stopped in Greenwood Tuesday morning to thank first responders for the work they do to keep our community safe.

First responders from nearly every organization in Greenwood County met with Duncan at Fire Station No. 3 on S. Main Street Tuesday morning.

 “I know, especially in a volunteer capacity, but in all capacities, (being a first responder) can be a thankless job,” Duncan said. “I don’t want it to be a thankless job. I want to say thank you. I want to take the opportunity to come around, look you in the eye and say thank you from the constituents I represent.”

The third Congressional district is comprised of all or part of 11 different counties in the Upstate. Duncan said he could not get to everyone every year, but he would continue making stops each year throughout the district. This is the second year for what Duncan calls his First Responders Tour.

“I realize when an accident happens or there is a fire or something dramatic, (first responders) are not running away from it, they are running toward it,” Duncan said. “They put their lives on the line. Whether it’s the sheriff’s deputies, the highway patrol, EMS firefighters or police we don’t say thanks enough. I wanted to come by here and say thank you more than anything else and let you know that I, and my staff, are here for you.”
