MEDIAPOLIS, Iowa — A fire department welcomed not one, but six bundles of joy over the last seven months.

“We didn’t actually plan it, it might seem like we did,” Whitney Eberhardt told WQAD.

Crews said the Mediapolis Fire Department has grown since August 2017, but they don’t mind. 

“It’s been fun to go through it with everybody and it’s definitely helpful that we’re all going through it together,” firefighter Tom Brockett said. 

Firefighters managed to gather the six babies for a photo of them on each of their father’s turnout gear over the weekend. They plan to make the group photo a yearly tradition. 

“We’re a family before this and we’ll be a family for a long time,” Brockett said.
