The firefighters from Engine 6-C were returning from a training exercise when they spotted an elderly man on the highway. When their truck pulled closer, they noticed the man was barefoot--and homeless.
Instead of calling 911 or merely taking him to a shelter, the firefighters stopped their truck. One of the firefighters had an extra pair of sneakers on the truck and handed them over to the captain. Shoes in hand, the captain, Rob Gabler, walked over to the man.

He showed the man the pair of sneakers.
Then put them on the guy's feet. Afterwards, he gave him some water.
No wonder this story is getting so much attention. The firefighters went above and beyond the call of duty.
