A man who survived the Route 91 Harvest Festival shooting in Las Vegas has started a fund to give gift baskets to the first responders who responded to the shooting.

Chad Robertson, 38, with the help of others has started the Las Vegas First Responder Thank You Fund with the goal of raising $100,000 to make and deliver 1,000 gift baskets to first responders, including law enforcement, firefighters and nurses.

It’s important for Robertson to recognize the hard work and danger the first responders faced as they ran into the festival grounds amid the gunshots fired by Stephen Paddock, who killed 58 people and injured nearly 500 people on Oct 1.

“Those guys are victims as well,” Robertson said in a phone interview with the Daily Times. “They’ll have a hard time going through things.”

Chad is the son of former Farmington (NM) Deputy Fire Chief Phil Robertson.
