On KTTC Sheriff Kevin Torgersen said,

"All these other people were equally as heroic and important throughout the last fifteen, sixteen, eighteen months related to the pandemic, certainly, as law enforcement, or firefighters and such. This is our way of going back to them and saying, 'You guys really made it happen.'"
