The 5-5-5 initiative began shortly after Lt. Eric Hill's funeral. His parents wanted to continue Eric's legacy of saving lives.
The Hills hope that using this simple example of bells ringing for a fallen firefighter will bring safety awareness to the community that he served and beyond. Our efforts include using the 5-5-5 messaging on Shirts, caps, stickers and other media outlets including public service announcements. Other examples are providing scholarships to those whose passion is to serve as a first-responder.
The 5-5-5 initiative hopes to be a voice of change in legislation and Fire Department procedures to prevent other first responder loved ones from going through the heartbreaking emotions of tragic events like happened on 1/11/2020.
