South Florida celebrates Int'l Firefighters' Day

Day to recognize sacrifices firefighters make to ensure our safety

MIAMI – For centuries, firefighters from all over the world have put their lives on the line to ensure the safety of you, your family and of those in your community.

On May 4, it's time to honor those men and women on International Firefighters' Day.

Residents around the globe are urged to wear red and blue ribbons to celebrate the holiday.

Here in South Florida, many local departments celebrated, and Miami-Dade Fire Rescue shared their "Year in Review" video to showcase all the department does... every day, every month, every year.

So today, even more than any other day, think of the firefighters who sacrifice it all to keep you safe and sound.
