A crew of Fort Lauderdale firefighters are local heroes after they made a life-saving decision. According to Fort Lauderdale Fire Rescue, on Thursday afternoon, Fort Lauderdale Fire Rescue Crew R246 noticed a newborn didn’t have a safe place to sleep when they were dispatched to a home in Broward County. After caring for the patient they were originally dispatched to, the crew completed the “Baby Sleep Safe” protocol under the Direct On Scene Education program and returned later with a new crib for the infant. The department posted the story on their official Facebook page full of pride and gratitude for the firefighters’ swift decision. The last sentence of the caption reads, “Please take a moment to recognize this crew for taking action to save a newborn's life before a tragedy happened.”
