National Firefighters Day and unusual rescues

We should always thank our heroes--but today is made for our men and women in red. It's National Firefighters Day!

So many are showing their gratitude via social media.

 

 

Firefighters save countless lives each day, but it's not only the humans who need saving. When you're a firefighter, there's no telling what you'll encounter.

Or even the police...

 

 

And many times, there's no fire involved...
