Lubbock Fire Rescue is asking the public to show their support for Matt Dawson by lining the escort route (shown above) from LFR Administration to Moody NeuroRehabilitation.

In a post by Lubbock Fire Department, it's described what all Matt has been through over the past half-year. After being struck by a vehicle in the line-of-duty, Dawson was in a coma, has been through numerous surgeries, tacked every intense rehabilitation program since march and dealt with all of this during a pandemic.
