Our first responders, our men and women of the Hartford Fire Department, put themselves at risk each and every day to protect the residents of the city. It takes an enormous amount of courage to do this. For that alone, they are heroes.

Good Afternoon Chief Rovella,
In a day and age when people are quick to see the police at their worst, I thought you might want to see one of your officers at their best.
I am not sure who the officer was but I was walking down Broad Street at about 9:45 this morning and snapped this photo. When I see stories on line of Police officers buying boots for homeless people or car seats I often wonder if it is not staged for PR but it is hard to argue with watching an on duty officer changing a tire for someone. This officer clearly went above and beyond and thought you would like to know.
