Free wills for first responders

First responders are constantly putting their lives in danger to protect others.

In fact, we've recently been reminded of this more than ever right here in the Heart of the Valley. Huntsville police officer Eric Freeman lost his life in a shooting this past December.

"We'll unfortunately we have experienced two in the line of duty deaths here and it's a dangerous job. These first responders do a lot for the community," said Rex Reynolds, director of Public Safety.

A dangerous job for all fire fighters, police officers, sheriff's deputies and EMT's.

That's why volunteer attorneys are writing wills for free for first responders as part of the "Wills for Heroes" program.

This is all in an effort to prepare first responders so whether or not they make it home at the end of the day, they know their families are protected.

"We don't know day to day in this business what is going to happen next, so protect your family, wife, children."
Joe Lougheed with Huntsville Fire and Rescue is one of many first responders to take advantage of writing up his will.

All clinics will run from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Free wills will be drafted today through Wednesday at the Public Safety Training Academy.

Thursday and Friday it will be at the HEMSI Training Center.
