“While most of us spent New Year’s Eve with family and friends, many of our first responders worked, fulfilling their responsibility to keep the public safe,” Neuhaus said. “I was happy to deliver pizzas to the dispatchers on the Orange County 911 floor and Orange County Sheriff’s Office on Sunday night. Their service to our communities allows us to enjoy the holidays in peace.”
Neuhaus visited Valley View on Monday morning (photo above) and returned to the 911 floor at the Emergency Services Center with bagels for staffers working on the holiday.
“The hard-working staff at Valley View will tell you that working the holidays is
part of their job,” Neuhaus added. “The reality is that they are making an
incredible sacrifice for the residents that they compassionately care for. I enjoyed spending time with the Valley View staff and wishing them a Happy New Year!”
