Peterman Brothers, an HVAC and plumbing company serving the Greater Indianapolis area, honored the sacrifice of active and former military personnel and first responders at the Indiana State Fair on Friday, Aug. 18. 

First responders and current and former members of the military who presented valid ID at the gate were admitted free with their families on Military and First Responders’ Day, sponsored by Peterman Brothers. 

“We want to pay tribute to the people who put their lives on the line to protect us and preserve our freedoms,” said Chad Peterman, president of Peterman Brothers. “The Indiana State Fair is a great event that represents the deep values we share in the Indianapolis area. That makes it a great occasion for us to express our gratitude to the neighbors who lay it all on the line and let them know how much we care and appreciate what they do.” 

In addition to Military and First Responders’ Day, Peterman Brothers had a booth at the fair. Attendees were able to stop by to register to win prizes and learn more about the company.
