The City of Miami Fire Rescue wanted to honor the healthcare workers who have been risking their lives to save others from COVID-19.
On Thursday, about 100 Mercy Hospital employees were greeted outside the hospital by a display of appreciation by the fire department.
It started off with a water salute where a fire boat in the Biscayne Bay outside of the hospital pumped streams of water several feet into the sky. That was followed by a procession of fire trucks blaring their sirens.
The department is one of many in South Florida to show their appreciation and solidarity with the doctors, nurses and staff workers at a hospital on the front lines of the coronavirus battle.
