Recommended Posts

Aberdeen, Md. ? Northern Safety Co., Inc. and the Aberdeen IronBirds are again collaborating to hold the second First Responder Night of the summer, to say ?Thank You? to local Fire servicemembers during the Class-A minor league baseball team?s game this Friday, July 17, 2015 at Leidos Field at Ripken Stadium.

Northern Safety, a Utica, N.Y.-based national distributor of top quality safety and industrial supplies, will join the IronBirds to honor Police, Fire, EMS and Military servicemembers during four separate IronBirds games. The first of the four First Responder Nights this summer started on July 10, 2015 for Police servicemembers. First responders will be recognized throughout the games with a pre-game ceremony, honorary first pitch, national anthem and more. Northern Safety will also be supporting local first responders with gift bags each night.

?In appreciation of their service to our country and their communities, Northern Safety couldn?t be happier to help ensure a fun night for first responders at the ballpark,? said Sal Longo, founder and CEO of Northern Safety & Industrial. ?At Northern Safety, we?re committed to delivering a message of safety and no one does that better every day than our first responders.?

Fire, EMS and Military servicemembers will be honored at upcoming First Responder Nights this summer, including:

July 17 ? Fire (vs. Hudson Valley Renegades)

July 24 ? EMS (vs. Williamsport Crosscutters)

August 6 ? Military (vs. Tri-City ValleyCats)

The Aberdeen IronBirds are the Baltimore Orioles? Class-A New York-Penn League short season affiliate. The team and its 6,300-seat stadium, Leidos Field at Ripken Stadium, is owned by the city of Aberdeen and maintained by Ripken Baseball, which represents the business interests of Cal Ripken, Jr. and his brother Bill Ripken.
