Daddy knows best!

It takes a special person to be a good father.  For those currently in the trenches of fatherhood, it’s a tough job, but worth every moment!  A dad may be the toughest guy around but he’ll melt at the smile of his child.  Just like mommy, being a dad is a 24/7 job and boy, it’s a magician’s bag full of surprises, challenges, experiences, and lessons to learn.  Every dad is different but most will tell you that to be a good one they must harvest patience, understanding, respect, humor, spirituality, generosity, diligence, courage, compassion, selflessness, strength, honesty, sacrifice, responsibility but above all, love.

At Altus Emergency, we RESPECT YOU, DADS! This Father’s Day Giveaway Waxahachie 2021 is dedicated to all the hard-working dads that every day: nurture, educate, support, and unconditionally love their families.
