MEDIA ALERT: First responders parade Friday, April 24
It’s a parade! First responders from Richland County and City of Columbia wanted to do something special for the Prisma Health team members to celebrate their hard work and dedication. The group decided that a parade would be a great way to show their appreciation for those who go beyond the call of duty every day and in this COVID-19 pandemic.
A variety of first responders will join in to show their appreciation. They will make a couple of stops along the route to cheer the team members on.
Team members will join in by smiling and waving from their windows and along the route.
