Photo Essay: Honoring Service

On April 20th, 2013, Miami Dade Fire Rescue celebrated their 13th Annual Medal Day. The event honors bravery amongst the finest firefighters and first responders of the Miami-Dade Fire Rescue Department.  Awards were given for commitment to service and brave actions committed on duty that went above and beyond their usual duties. These are just a few of the photos I took during the ceremony, and were submitted as a final project for a Documentary Photography class at the University of Miami supervised by Maggie Steber.
