EMERGENCY services crews across the region have had a tough few days on the job and faced adversities many hope to never endure.

They take people's lives into their hands and cradle them - giving us hope at times when all seems lost.

They are the first on the scene of any car crash, fire, or other emergency and never hesitate put their own well-being aside for that of strangers.

And while it is often put down to them doing their job, it is clear the community considers it to be much more.

The Daily News has been inundated with messages of praise and thanks to the ambulance officers, firefighters and police officers who put their own safety at risk on a daily basis to help those who need it most.

This is Warwick's show of appreciation to the men and women of the emergency services.

"Appreciate is not a strong enough word. Where would we be without these incredible people? The conditions you endure, the circumstances you face - none of us can imagine. You are all amazing." Karen Johnson

"Thank the gods for these people who put their lives on the line to save ours. Thank you." Donna Page

"Merv Bray and to all the emergency service workers - a big heartfelt thank you for all you do, see and have to deal with in helping others." Samantha O'Neil

"Thank you to the all the people involved in the emergency services. You people do such a wonderful job helping our community." Kylie Robson

"I know not every one believes in God, but you have to believe in angels. Angel police, angel ambos, angel firies and all the others who back them up. Please accept my personal thanks for the very difficult jobs you have been doing over the past days and every day. You are all angels in every sense of the word and I thank God for each and every one of you." Ann-Maree Mann

"It's not a job I could do but I sure am glad there are people who can do it. They are today's heroes." Leah Kelly

"Thank you just doesn't seem big enough for the incredible job these people do. They truly are our earth's angels." Tanya Peters
