In Westfield, NY on Saturday, the community dedicated a monument to the village's police and fire department personnel.

The tribute is located at the site of the first fire department in Westfield.

The monument is an 8 foot tall, 4 ton stone and metal structure, with plaques on all four sides.

One side includes the police prayer, another the firefighter prayer, and there is a plaque dedicated to all first responders past, present and future.

A big crowd turned out for the dedication ceremony. 

The new monument honors all who answer emergency calls day or night to save the lives and property of their neighbors and people they may not even know.
