The event, spearheaded by the Northern Arizona VA Healthcare System, will recognize the relationships between local communities’ hospitals and front-line healthcare staff who have been battling the Covid-19 pandemic. The VA Healthcare System Police Service has invited area first responders to pay tribute to these heroes with the emergency vehicle procession at all three medical centers – The Northern Arizona VA Hospital and Yavapai Regional Medical Centers West in Prescott and East in Prescott Valley.
“The healthcare providers in our hospitals and clinics have displayed an unwavering dedication to provide care and treatment for our patients throughout this difficult time. The first responders representing their respective agencies in this event wish to show our gratitude,” VA Chief of Police Brian Schuman said.

The procession on June 4 will stage at 9:30 a.m. at the Findlay Toyota Center parking lot in Prescott Valley and visit YRMC East before travelling to Prescott. Traffic control will be provided by the Prescott Valley and Prescott Police Departments, and the VA Police while on VA property.
Police ask that residents not be alarmed at the emergency lights and sirens while this event is taking place, and exercise caution and patience as this procession honors the work and sacrifices of our health care professionals and first responders during the Covid-19 pandemic.
