Honoring International FireFighter’s Day


(Miami-Dade County, FL) -- 

In honor of “International FireFighter’s Day”, Commissioner Jose “Pepe” Diaz and Blue Bell Ice cream will be scooping delicious ice cream for firefighters and fire administrators at the Miami-Dade Fire Rescue Headquarters on Friday, May 3, 2013, starting at 9:30 a.m.

“I have a lot of respect for our firefighters, who day in and day out risk their lives”, said Commissioner Diaz. “What better way to show our appreciation for their commitment and dedication to our community than by providing them with some scrumptious Blue Bell Ice Cream”. 

International Firefighters’ Day is observed on May 4, after the tragic deaths of five firefighters fighting a large wild fire in Australia on December 2, 1998. International Firefighters Day also recognizes the lives lost, as well as honors fire fighters who risk their lives every day to save life and property.
