Some South Florida first responders received a warm reception home Tuesday.
They were part of a FEMA search and rescue task force which helped with recovery operations after Hurricane Florence struck the Carolinas.
They were deployed for almost three weeks, authorities said.
Some Palm Beach County fire departments flew American Flags over I-95 overpasses to welcome the group home.
