RAPID CITY, S.D. (KOTA TV) - Brain Blair, the owner of Brian Blair Farmers Insurance woke up this morning and wanted to give back to those who puts their lives at risk for our safety. He posted on Facebook telling any first responders in the Rapid City are could go to Dunn Brothers, get their favorite drink, and it was on him.

He says Farmers Insurance at its root is all about giving back to the community so he was happy to give back to men and woman who give everything for us.

"A way to spread positively and say thanks to these guys. You call 9-1-1 there's people showing up to your house and they probably don't always get the gratitude they deserve," says Brain Blair the owner of Brian Blair Farmers Insurance.

Blair's act of kindness has sparked others in the nation to do the same including Kansas City, East Texas, New York, Gillette and Spearfish. Dunn Brother's coffee will be open until 9 pm, if you are a first responder Blair encourages you to get a coffee on him.
