On Sunday, a local Abilene restaurant provided free lunch to emergency personnel.
From 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., Heff's Burgers offered free burgers to policemen, firefighters, EMT and other first responders for their hard work during the harsh weather conditions over the weekend.
This was just a small token of appreciation compared to what the workers go through, according to owner Brenda Heffaren.
"They're really grateful and we're really appreciative," Heffaren said. "We just don't know what we would do without them out there."
