San Antonio Firefighters arrive in South Carolina to assist in Recovery Efforts
Rescue San Antonio Firefighters have left San Antonio and are now part of the the efforts in South Carolina after hurricane Michael. "We hate to see him go", states one Firefighters wife as she said goodbye, "But they need him more than us, we are fine and they are in need".
Our firefighters are constantly on the forefront of protecting and rescuing our citizens 24/7 three hundred and sixty-five days a year. With the talent and bravery of our San Antonio Firefighters we know after the long days of work (24/7) San Antonio Firefighters then continue to raise monetary funds for Muscular Dystrophy and Breast Cancer Awareness month this October.
In August of 2017 a water rescue on Pinn Rd where a citizen drove into a low water crossing and our Firefighters were able to get him to safety before the flood waters washed his vehicle away, not to long apart a horrible fire erupted at an apartment complex where a mom and baby trapped on their balcony were screaming for help. The mom threw the baby down to the Firefighter who caught the baby and than rescued the mom. Another time a young woman in a car accident tragically took this lady's arms and severed them off. Firefighters on that scene saved the lady and her arms that were then able to be surgically reattached.
