Cos Cob, CT - In today's parlance, the term "first responder" is associated with trained emergency professionals, but originally it meant literally the first person to respond in a crisis.

Everyday Heroes: Greenwich First Responders chronicles the history of Greenwich's Fire, Police and Emergency Medical Services beginning with General Putman, one of Greenwich's "first" first responders who in 1779 rode to warn of invading British troops. Everyday Heroes is currently on display at Greenwich Historical Society, Storehouse Gallery, 39 Strickland Road, Cos Cob, CT, and will be closing its doors on August 26, 2012.

Don't miss the opportunity to visit this fascinating show at the Greenwich Historical Society that documents headline-making local disasters and chronicles emergency response throughout our town's history.

The exhibition also includes a hands-on gallery where kids can try on actual fire and police gear and learn what it takes to become a first responder.
