 First responders from various agencies in Galveston County, including League City, were recognized on Wednesday, September 8 at the annual Patriot Awards Luncheon, hosted by the League City Regional Chamber of Commerce. Each year, Patriot Awards are given to EMS, firefighters, police officers and public works employees who were nominated for going above and beyond the call of duty in their service to their community. The event is meant to bring the community together to thank local first responders for their hard work and dedication to the safety of the community.

The awards are handed out annually in conjunction with the anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks and the landfall of Hurricane Harvey in August 2017. This year League City 2021 Patriot Award winners include Wastewater Superintendent Susie Blake, Detective Marty Grant, EMT-Paramedic Christopher Johnson and Volunteer Firefighter Allen Portman. 

During the ceremony, speakers highlighted the efforts of the first responders that earned them the Patriot Award, ranging from community service efforts, investigating hundreds of complex cases, being willing to fill in for coworkers as needed, and many other attributes that garnered respect of their fellow first responders. Congratulations to our local heroes!
