The EPD sent out a press release earlier today with all of the information about the event:

The public is invited to the Public Safety Appreciation Ceremony being held this afternoon at the Veteran's Memorial Coliseum. The ceremony begins at 4:00pm and will recognize the work being done by area first responders.
The key note speaker will be NYPD Deputy Chief Theresa Tobin. Deputy Chief Tobin responded to the 9/11 attacks as a press officer. She quickly found herself involved in the rescue of numerous people. The events that unfolded that day left her with multiple injuries. Despite suffering a broken ankle and a head injury, Deputy Chief Tobin is credited with saving dozens of lives during the rescue and evacuation efforts.
Today's ceremony will be held on the front steps of the Coliseum and will include comments from local community leaders.


We will be out there to cover the event in it's entirety on WKDQ's Facebook. Be sure to tune into Facebook Live at 4 PM today to see the event if you aren't able to make it out.
