Thursday, October 28, 2021 was National First Responders Day and Matthew Cope woke up that morning to start his shift as a Johnson City Police Officer. Nine hours into a twelve-hour shift one emergency call changed everything.
His house was on fire.
Thankfully, his wife and son (age 7) were unharmed as were the two family pets but they lost almost everything to the flames. A public servant who has responded to many emergency situations and been there to offer aid to anyone in his community, there is nothing to prepare you when it is your family on the other end of the need.
Now it's time for his law enforcement family and the community to come together and help a family rebuild and bring life back to their happy home.
