Many local residents and firefighters filled the Greensboro United Methodist Church for a "Blessing of the Firefighters."
The volunteer firefighters helped plan the event to thank their co-workers for their bravery and hard work in emergency situations.
Norman Scholer, Chief of the Greensboro Fire Department, said, "The joy to see that we can save property, maybe a life, help people get on with their lives after an incident with a fire."
This is a busy month for firefighters. October is also "Fire Prevention Month."
