Photo of the Week: #LightItBlue campaign honors first responders, healthcare workers
This week’s Photo of the Week shows Niagara Falls in New York illuminated with blue lights in a tribute to first responders and healthcare workers on the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Landmarks across the state are lit blue tonight in support of all the healthcare workers and all the essential personnel on the frontlines in our battle against COVID-19,” New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo wrote in a Tweet, as part of the worldwide #LightItBlue campaign.
Other landmarks in the state, including the Tappan Zee Bridge and the Javitz Center, were also lit up blue in tribute to frontline personnel.
Deposit Fire & Rescue in New York also participated by lighting up their station in collaboration with Eastern Broome Emergency Services.
