INDIANAPOLIS — First responders from more than 20 departments took a pause from their day on Wednesday to say thank you to healthcare workers at an Indianapolis hospital.

Lawrence firefighers, police officers, members of the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department and members of more than 20 other agencies participated in a parade in front of Community North Hospital.

Healthcare workers stood in front of the hospital waving as the parade of first responders moved past the hospital entrance.

"We get such an outpouring of support for your police officers and firefighters and of course that's very deserving but I think sometimes it's those doctors and nurses, not just the healthcare professionals with direct patient contact but those that keep the facility clean, those that provide security there, those that do all those things that are just so critical to keeping us healthy," Lawrence police Chief David Hofmann said.
