Members of local law enforcement and fire departments blared sirens and inspiring music outside Goleta Valley Cottage Hospital to honor healthcare workers.
First responders from the Santa Barbara County Sheriff's Department, California Highway Patrol, paramedics and EMTs from American Medical Response (AMR), and firefighters from the Santa Barbara County Fire Department (SBCFD) drove their vehicles into the hospital's parking lot Monday evening.
Outside the emergency room doors, they turned on the lights to their emergency vehicles, clapped, and played "Holding Out for a Hero" by Bonnie Taylor on full blast.
Their message to healthcare workers during the coronavirus pandemic was simple, thank you.
"Thank You to all hospital personnel across the nation for their tireless efforts in the battle against COVID19. We Thank You," wrote Mike Eliason from the SBCFD.
