During a walk a few weeks ago, a couple of well-behaved dogs were introduced to me by their owner. He relayed the two mixed-breeds were rescue dogs.
I smiled because I’m a rescue too.
In the safety profession, there is a kinship between the rescued and the rescuer. The EHS professional seeks every day to extend the life-years of fellow humans. Some of the best in this most precious of professions are further called to enhance the quality of life in those years.
Like many of you, I am here today because of rescuers. Those priceless individuals who decide, in that moment, to make a difference.
Whether you rescue dogs, cats, ferrets, or humans…thank you. You make an immeasurable difference in the world.
