KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) — As usual, residents of Kansas City are more than generous opening both their hearts and their wallets to help men and women risking their lives. KCTV5 News wants to show you how residents helped.
Sadly, Kansas City has endured the loss of several firefighters and police officers killed in the line of duty.
As a community, we’ve shown time and time again how much our first responders mean to us through fundraisers, benefits and just reaching out to families who’ve suffered unimaginable losses.
It was no different last June when the community came together again for one day to raise some money for supplies required to keep our first responders safe. Hero Fund USA held a telethon at the KCTV5 News studios and it’s already making a difference.
The Grandview Police Department was able to get its’ first drone. Sargent Martin Studdard says they’re just about ready to launch.
