HAMILTON, ONT. – The Hamilton Bulldogs Hockey Club and City of Hamilton announced today plans to honour the regions’ police, fire and ambulance services with First Responders’ Night on Friday, Jan. 23 when the ‘Dogs take on the Toronto Marlies at FirstOntario Centre at 7:30 p.m.

This is the second year that the city and Bulldogs have teamed up to organize this event in honour of Hamilton’s first responders, which includes police, fire and ambulance staff. In addition to the game, there will be a ceremonial puck drop as well as interactive in-game components and activities associated with the first responders theme.

“We’re excited that the City of Hamilton and the Hamilton Bulldogs are partnering once again to recognize the tremendous work of our First Responders,” said the City of Hamilton’s manager of revenue generation Brian MacDonald. “This event is a wonderful opportunity for residents to come together to show their appreciation for these individuals who help to keep our community safe.”

“First responders are our city’s heroes whose line of work can potentially put them in harm’s way each day,” said Bulldogs president Stephen Ostaszewicz. “We’re honoured to join forces with the City of Hamilton once again this year to help raise awareness and show appreciation for the great work our police, fire and ambulance services do each and every day.”
