SANTEE, Calif. — A fire captain was recognized for his efforts in cleaning up a home after he and his crew tracked in mud during a medical call.
The Santee Fire Department shared a photo of Captain Thompson vacuuming the hallway of a patient’s home after firefighters climbed through a window of the home to reach the patient suffering a medical emergency.
"When people come home from the hospital, the last thing they probably want to do is clean up a mess we created," the department said. “Our goal is to leave places we visit in the same or better condition than when we find them.”
