The Winter Park Fire-Rescue Department just released a four-part documentary series that highlights the journey of four of their fire service members in a series called, “Answering the Call.”

The series, which was released weekly through the month of September, was timed to coincide with Patriot Day, a national day of remembrance honoring the men and women, including 343 firefighters, who died while responding to the September 11, 2001, attacks.

The series profiles a former pro-soccer player, Florida State University football player, professional boxer, and surfer turned second-generation firefighter.

“Often we see these individuals in their gear or on the fire truck, but behind the bunker, they are our neighbors, family members, loved ones, and even talented athletes. Their dedication to others is immeasurable. We hope their stories inspire people to reach out in support of their local heroes, remember those we’ve lost, or perhaps even pursue a career helping others,” said Fire Chief Dan Hagedorn.
