The firefighter was recuperating at Kendall Regional Medical Center
Firefighters banded together to deliver a heartfelt message to their colleague recovering from coronavirus in the hospital so he wouldn't feel alone.
A video was shared on Facebook by the Miami-Dade Fire Rescue of a surprise for one of its own still in the hospital recovering from COVID-19.
The firefighter, who was not named, was recuperating at Kendall Regional Medical Center and "feeling isolated from the rest of the world."
Miami-Dade Fire Rescue's video shows a fire truck from Station 36 arriving outside the hospital as firefighters begin to set up to send their greetings.
"There they are, all this for me," the firefighter can be heard saying in the video.
Firefighters approached the fourth-floor hospital window on the fire truck's ladder.
One firefighter held up a sign that read:
"Your New Firehouse."
The firefighter on the ladder wished their colleague a speedy recovery on behalf of the entire department.
