Douglasville, Georgia – Douglas County Firefighter/AEMT Spencer Caradine has released the following statement after recent media attention of a heartwarming moment with his fellow co-workers was captured on video.

"The recent and overwhelming amount of attention I have received from a surprise gift by my brothers and sisters of the Douglas County Fire Department has shown me why I am proud to be a Douglas County Firefighter. As one of the youngest members of this department, this act of love, kindness, and the overwhelming aftermath from it was nothing I could have ever anticipated. I am humbled to be among many veteran firefighters who have sacrificed so much to help others and honored by their continued support. This experience has given me a much deeper understanding and respect for the "Brotherhood" of the fire service. It has also made me appreciate, even more, the sacrifice of all those who commit their lives to serving others and those who have paid the ultimate price."
