They help us through our worst day, shield us through tragedy, and 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, firefighter, or EMT for WKRG News 5’s Smiles Behind the Shield award. Watch WKRG at 6:00pm the last Thursday of every month to see who is the recipient of this award.
