Ciresi Calls for Bells/Sirens to Show Solidarity

Blogger's Note: The following was provided by the offices of state Rep. Joe Ciresi, D-146th Dist.

State Rep. Joe Ciresi, D-Montgomery, encourages fire stations and buildings of worship across Montgomery County to show solidarity by extending appreciation to first responders, health care workers, educators and others for their service during COVID-19 stay-at-home orders.

First responders and religious leaders, if they choose to participate, should activate sirens or ring bells for up to five minutes on Monday, April 13 (Fire Stations at 7 p.m./ Houses of worship at 7:05 p.m.). Similar displays have occurred in New York.

“Since last month, our citizens have shown tremendous resolve, kindness, and poise in the face of unprecedented uncertainty,” Ciresi said. “I cannot thank our EMTs, nurses, doctors, police officers, and all health and safety workers enough for persevering in the face of this invisible enemy. They are keeping us alive. So, I am asking for a public show of solidarity -- that we can all find joy in while staying safely at home.”

Ciresi encourages everyone to adhere to the stay-at-home order issued by Gov. Tom Wolf for all 67 counties, in place until at least April 30.

Ciresi’s office staff remains available by phone or email, although the physical office is closed. For more information, call 484-200-8265 or email

Meanwhile, here is a song of which I am fond to get you into the mood for some bell ringing:
