ORLANDO, Fla. — A video of a California fire department truck on its way to Hurricane Irma has gone viral.

Times of San Diego reported that the Los Angeles Fire Department truck is part of the city’s swift water rescue team. The truck was carrying two speedboats and was captured on the highway near Disney World.

“Chokes me up,” Twitter user Franco Powers said. “This is so cool, these boys are all the way from California.”

An LAFD spokesperson said 80 firefighters were sent to Florida to aid in Hurricane Irma rescue efforts, and were “honored to now help Floridians during Hurricane Irma, on behalf of the people of Los Angeles.”
