Operation 10-8 honors the work of first-responders through public recognition and education. Operation 10-8 is dedicated to the brave men, women, and animals serving in public-safety who tirelessly work to build relationships with communities to keep them safe, but receive little recognition or gratitude for it.

They also have a private FB group called Survive & Thrive focusing on motivating first responders to be mentally & physically fit!
