His Reaction To A Barefoot Homeless Man Is INCREDIBLE!
Earlier this month, Members of the City of Riverside Fire Department in California saw that an elderly man was walking barefoot on the side of a busy freeway overpass.
Engine 6-C assist elderly homeless gentleman with tennis shoes.
Engine 6-C was returning from training and noticed a local elderly homeless gentleman walking very slowly on the side of the freeway overpass on Columbia. He had no shoes. Engine 6 pulled over and assisted the gentleman. Firefighter David Gilstrap offered his tennis shoes which he had on the engine company and Captain Rob Gabler walked over and assisted the elderly gentleman with putting the shoes on and offered him some water. Just another great example of the City of Riverside Fire Department helping our members of the community.
Thank you to Engineer Chris Adams for sharing this story.
The group of firefighters pulled over upon such a sight, and firefighter David Gilstrap offered up his own tennis shoes to the homeless man. Capt. Rob Gabler then helped the man to a safe area.
Now THIS story is worthy of sharing!
“We do go out of the way to take care of the members of the community and help them get what they need,
“Our agency is part of the fabric of the community — we’re building that relationship with the community,” he said. “And we want to let them know that we’re here for them in all aspects — not just fighting fire and emergency and rescue services. We’re here for you.”
Keep in mind that God sees your every good and bad deed, thank you Riverside Fire Department! We need more people like you in this world!
