Kentucky girl becomes honorary Martinsville Firefighter

MARTINSVILLE (WSLS 10) - The Martinsville Fire Department has a new honorary member.

Grace Anna was initiated into the brotherhood after a lieutenant at the fire department saw a Facebook video of her singing "One Call Away."

In May, the department used the song in a promotional video.

The fire department decided to reach out to Anna's family and share the promotional video with them.

Chief Ted Anderson said the family called the firefighters heroes, so the department decided to return the favor by sending Grace some pink plastic fire helmets, a stuffed dalmation, and a certificate.

"She's inspiration for us," Chief Anderson emphasized. "We want everyone to see the personal side of [firefighting] and how we see someone we can effect, have a positive influence on, especially with what's going on in the nation today."

Chief Anderson said Grace was so excited to receive the items, she made up a song about firefighters.
