Water on U.S. Flag


Firefighters Rescue State Flag, Stars & Stripes Before Sinking In Floodwaters

Following heavy rains and rising water levels, firefighters made these important patriotic rescues, retrieving two flags from a flagpole that were quickly sinking.

The Lake Travis Fire Department bravely reached for the state flag of Texas and the American flag before they were completely submerged. The crews were in the area conducting hazard assessments when they found the wayward flags.

The selfless crewmembers, mindful of preserving our country’s symbols of freedom, saved and folded both items before getting them back to shore.

If you know of a police, fire or EMT unit in your community that you think should be recognized, tell the Marc Cox Show about them! 

Each weekday, during the month of November, we’ll highlight a different group and thank them for the difficult jobs they do serving and protecting our communities.
