Calling all fire photographers: FireRescue1 wants to see your pictures! The next time you come across something inspiring, take out the camera and submit it to FireRescue1! Just remember to include your name, agency information and brief background information on the picture.
This week's Photo of the Week comes from the Grantsboro Volunteer Fire Department and shows the homecoming of Firefighter Maegan Speciale, who was seriously injured after being struck by a car while on duty.
Speciale was struck while directing traffic during a mutual aid response to a Beaufort County fire in March, according to WCTI 12. After four months of treatment and recovery, Speciale received a warm welcome back to her home in Pamlico County, with a parade featuring dozens of emergency vehicles.
"Maegan is home! She still has a ways to go but definitely moving in the right direction!" the department wrote on Facebook on Monday.
