(ABC 6 NEWS) - Each year Universal Marine and RV in Rochester holds an event to honor area police officers, firefighters, paramedics, and veterans.
They are giving away thousands of dollars in prizes and there's tons of family activities are going on. This year they also are paying tribute to Tommy Decker, the officer from Cold Spring who was killed in the line of duty last year.
"It's a focus on the people in our community that work beyond their pay grade. You know, if you have to wear a bullet proof vest to work every day I mean what's that worth, so we wanted to put together an event to honor that," said Scott Kunz, General Manager of Universal Marine and RV.
The event runs until Saturday where a Mayo One helicopter will drop in and you can meet the Olmsted County search and rescue dog.
