They help us through our worst day, shield us through tragedy, or offer a helping hand when we least expect it. They are the Smiles Behind The Shield. WKRG News 5 and our partners want to recognize local first responders who have gone above the call of duty and made a difference in your life. Nominate a police officer, fireman, or EMT for the WKRG News 5's Smiles Behind the Shield award. Be sure to tune in on WKRG at 6:30pm the last Friday every month to see who is the recipient of this award.
