BECKLEY, WV (WVNS) — Monday, May 4, is a day focused on honoring men and women who serve our community.
May 4 is International Firefighters’ Day. Not only do they fight fire and conduct rescues, they also play a huge part in the community. Firefighters across southern West Virginia visit schools and businesses to teach people about fire prevention.
Mike Segars is a firefighter with the Beckley Fire Department.
“I would guess that most firefighters do what they do because they love helping people. That’s why I do it,” Segars said.
If you see a firefighter, make sure you show them your appreciation!
