One hundred Miami-Dade County firefighters are being recognized for their service during Medal Day.

A statement from Miami-Dade Fire Rescue says Medal Day recognizes "the meritorious efforts of the men and women who perform above and beyond the call of duty in a job that requires unparalleled bravery every day."

The awards were handed out on Saturday in Doral. This is the 14th annual Medal Day.

The firefighters are being recognized in five different categories, with the highest being the Exceptional Service Award. Award recipients include firefighters who saved a person from a near drowning to those who saved two children from a burning home.
