MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, Fla. — Florida firefighters surprised one of their own who is recovering from the coronavirus.

A Miami-Dade firefighter was recently hospitalized with COVID-19, so his fellow firefighters geared up and equipped their fire truck with “get well soon” cards and a sign that read “your new firehouse.”

Firefighters raised the ladder to the fourth-floor hospital window to lift up their colleague’s spirits and wish him a speedy recovery.

The un-named firefighter described the gesture as heartfelt love from his brothers and sisters in the fire department.
