Today, Salt Lake City mayor Jackie Biskupski delivered a Christmas ham to the firefighters of Salt Lake’s Station No. 2 on Sunday afternoon.
Firefighters say they were very grateful.
"We have to work on Christmas Eve, so we’re not able to be home with our families. It’s great to be able to have a meal together – we work 48 hour shifts, and our crew is our family," Captain John Hill told News4Utah.
In addition to working 48 hours shifts, crews are usually responsible for paying for their own food.
