HOUSTON -

On this Labor Day, while many people have the day off to share a long weekend with family and friends, others, including first responders, are hard at work.

The Cy-Fair Volunteer Fire Department has more than 300 firefighters on hand, making up one of the largest and busiest departments in the country. In fact, Cy-Fair firefighters respond to more than 15,000 emergencies each year.

KPRC’s Ruben Galvan spent his Labor Day morning with some of the men and women in Cy-Fair who give up their nights, weekends, and of course, holidays to help protect our community.
