BANGOR - They're used to helping the community, but today the tables were turned.
Empire Beauty School offered complimentary haircuts to all police officers, firefighters, and EMTs.
It was part of the school's first responders day, honoring the men and women who help treat and prevent domestic violence.
"We like to honor them. We use their services every day, whether it's here in the school or out in the community," explains executive director Amy Guiggey.
If you didn't make today's event, you're in luck. First responders are welcome to contact students at empire to schedule a free hair cut, any time.
