Firefighters save man's life, then finish shoveling his driveway

A crew of Wisconsin firefighters is receiving praise from around the country after a photo of them shoveling a snowy driveway has gone viral.

The four firefighters, all members of the Greenfield, Wisconsin, Fire Department, were photographed on Sunday removing snow off the driveway of a man they had just taken to the hospital.

They just saw that somebody needed help and they took time out of their day, their busy schedule, to do something like that,” she said. “It’s amazing. It’s awesome.”

Cohn says his fire department has chosen to use their “dwindling 15 minutes of fame” from the photo to create more positive action. Using the hashtag, #shovelitforward, the department is encouraging people to help others, whether it be shoveling snow or just offering a helping hand.
