WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — Riviera Beach Fire Rescue did their part to thank emergency personnel Saturday at St. Mary's Medical Center.

The department brought its fire trucks and emergency vehicles to give thanks to the medical professionals who are taking care of patients each day at the hospital.

Riviera Beach City Manager Jonathan Evans was on hand to express his gratitude.

"This is important because we're all a team. We're all in this together," Evans said. "The only way that we can be able to get out of a situation like this is working together, collaboratively, to combat this enemy."

Lindsay Silva, an employee at St. Mary's Medical Center, said she was touched by it.

"It was really emotional because we definitely, including themselves, risk their lives every day to make sure we save people's lives and keep them safe and healthy so they can take care of their loved ones as well," she said.

The public safety personnel showed their appreciation by lighting up vehicles, waving, clapping, and cheering on the heroes in the community.
