From DC Fire And EMS:
“DC firefighters and EMS workers are a special breed, and often quietly go the extra mile to help our citizens.
Such was the case during the Memorial Day weekend, when Truck Company 16 was dispatched to the 3400 block of Nash Place Southeast.
They arrived to find a citizen who was trimming hedges while in his walker. The walker collapsed and the gentleman fell to the ground.
The members of Truck 16 helped the man up and assisted him inside his home, but their efforts did not end there.
The firefighters went on to repair the walker, and than completed the yard work. A grateful neighbor witnessed this act of kindness, and send us these photos.
The personnel involved were Captain Mike Dolby, Firefighter Technician Mark Colbert, and Firefighters Vincent Hunnicut, Jeffrey Mathias, and Davon Moore.”
