The Shreveport Fire Department’s “Golden Hour”

dollar signTomorrow will be a busy one for Shreveport firefighters. Not only will they be installing smoke detectors in the MLK area, they’ll also participate in the American Heart Association’s Annual “Golden Hour.” The fundraiser runs from 11 a.m. until noon, with firefighters positioned at major intersections throughout the city collecting money for the cause. Event organizer and heart attack survivor Captain Frederick Williams has set a goal of $15,000. The golden hour represents the 60 minutes that someone experiencing heart attack symptoms has to seek and receive medical attention in order to have the greatest chance for survival. And Capt. Williams says in order to reach the lofty fundraising goal, firefighters have to collect $250 per minute. So…have your dollars and cents ready to hand to them while you’re sitting at that red light tomorrow.
