Mayor Julián Zacarías Curi, explained that, without a doubt, this program is a way to reward the efforts of nurses, doctors, orderlies and all the personnel who faced the health contingency.

That is why, on this occasion, the mayor instructed the Health Department to register its personnel to the state program to obtain discounts in governmental procedures, such as driver’s license, birth certificate, among others, and in commercial establishments.

The reception of documents took place at the Health facilities, where 45 employees handed in a copy and original of their official identification, their last pay stub and their Unique Population Registry Code (CURP).

It is worth mentioning that “Citizen Heroes” is a program aimed at medical, public safety, firefighters, custodians, civil protection, army, navy and national guard personnel who serve 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, to maintain the care of citizens, regardless of the risks involved in their work.

These cards are a way to thank them for their work, especially during the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic and its variants.
