A total of 52 Baltimore (MD) firefighters were honored this weekend at a memorial service, reports CBS Baltimore.
None died while on duty.
In the last year, the city has not lost any firefighters at fire scenes.
“When we do have a firefighter killed, we look at that and we say, ‘why?’ Our number one thing for our officers and all our guys who come to work every day is that everyone goes home safe,” said Lt. Tom Nosek, Baltimore City Fire Department.
For the first time, Anne Arundel County firefighters were honored at the ceremony for the help they provided at a fierce fire scene earlier this year.
Shortly after the memorial service, the city hosted its Medals Day to recognize top firefighters in the department.
