TALLAHASSEE, FL -- Governor Rick Scott issued a proclamation Wednesday, saying January 4th through 8th will be "First Responder Appreciation Week".

According to Scott, the week will recognize all of the people who put their lives on the lines each day to protect others.

He's also asking Florida's College Presidents and Superintendents to encourage students to thank first responders and their families.

This is the second year Governor Scott has made the proclamation.
