Firefighter proposes to elementary school teacher during fire prevention day

MONTGOMERY COUNTY, Texas – A Montgomery County firefighter made a surprising proposal to his girlfriend during fire prevention day at Parmley Elementary School.

The video shows Christian Ghali demonstrating fire safety to students as Marissa and another teacher assisted, wearing a firefighters equipment.

Ghali said he met Marissa two years ago doing the same fire prevention at Parmley Elementary School, so this year he decided this would be a perfect time to propose.

"This year I was scheduled to perform fire prevention at her school again so I figured there couldn't be a better time and place with all her friends around, and also I was able to get her family to the school, to pop the big question," he said.

In the video, Ghali tells Marissa to go through the gear and pull out everything firefighters carry for safety tools, but she didn't know a ring was included.

Ghali got on one knee as students went wild with excitement for their teacher.

Oh -- and she said "Yes" of course.
