Joking apart, the Blizzard gave us some examples of genuine bravery and devotion. When responding to medical calls, volunteers had to make their way through waist-deep snow to reach people in a need.

? FEATURED POST ? @emtlife - @Regrann from @chip_adams - My partner and I responding on a medical call to an apartment. We had to hike in about 200 meters through snow that was anywhere from knee deep to waist deep depending on how it was drifting. This is what most calls looked like all day and night long. I have enjoyed every minute of this. _______________________________________ FEATURED POST . ● Must follow @chief_miller and @555fitness ● Use #chiefmiller ●Private pages must DM pictures ● Only the best will be posted ● Tag your friends . . ✔check out www.555fitness.com ✔ #firefighter #firerescue #firetruck #smokeshowing #firefighter #firerescue #firetruck #kcco #firedept #chive #swag #amazing #medic #firechick#fires #chivers #emt #medic #firedepartment #medical #picoftheday #motivation #fire #apparatus #bombeiros #blizzard2016 #wildfire #fullyinvolved #fireman #turnoutgear #firefighters
