A Hero’s Life will feature the “Heroes Behind The Badge” documentary, which is an introduction to some of the fallen heroes and living legends who put their lives on the line and survived, or made the ultimate sacrifice. Wayne Derrick, Director, is an award-winning film and television director who has worked on documentary projects throughout the world and has won two BAFTA awards - the British equivalent of the Academy Award. The event will also showcase many of today’s public safety vehicles allowing people a quick glimpse into the life of a public safety official. Supporters will have the opportunity to meet and greet public safety officials with different backgrounds, hear some of their personal life saving stories and traumatic events. Emory Healthcare has committed to landing one of their Emory branded helicopters at the event, Georgia Bureau of Investigations (GBI) has committed to having their bomb squad present and will have their bomb robot for display and the city of Roswell has agreed to have their fire safety house on site. Currently the following agencies will also be attending the event: city of Dunwoody Police Department, Norcross Police Department, Johns Creek Police Department, and Roswell Fire Department, Alpharetta & Roswell SWAT, Rural Metro Medical Services….. And the list goes on. During this event we plan to have a family Miniature Golf tournament with 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place prizes and all winners will be announced on Facebook. There will be door prizes, silent auction, moonwalk, inflatable slide, and many other great family activities.
