These heroes aren’t just limited to fighting fires – they are also being hailed for rescuing a tiny hummingbird.
Firefighters from the Richburg Fire Rescue in South Carolina found the little critter outside of their fire station earlier this week.
According to the department’s Facebook page, the bird was lying tired and dehydrated on the pavement.
The crew members filled a bottle cap with water and stayed with the animal until it had drank enough water and was strong enough to stand and fly away.
“You can teach almost anyone how to be a firefighter, a medic or just about anything imaginable. What is virtually impossible to teach is compassion,” writes the department. “We are fortunate that we have a tremendous group in our department that has passion and desire to help, regardless of the situation.”
“This isn’t the first time this has happened and knowing our members, it will not be the last!”
