The video from the First Response Appreciation Gala, held on Saturday, July 15 at Hyatt Place in Garland, has been released. It’s a little long but includes words of inspiration from former mayor Todd Gottel, State Representative Cindy Burkett, Texas Police Commissioner Rob Kyker and our guest speaker, KRLD afternoon news anchor KRLD Chris Sommer. You’ll also see the many departments from all over North Texas that received awards for their part in helping Rowlett through its darkest time of need.

See the video below.
