Firefighters Hold Special Graduation Parade For Daughter Of Fallen Dallas Firefighter – Video

Whenever a firefighter loses his life while in the line of duty, it is heartwarming to hear and see support from the brother and sisterhood across the country. However, many people ignore that still, the support proceeds many years after that firefighter hero is no more.

The perfect example is this story which happened in Mansfield. In 2020, the drive-thru graduation parade has become a trademark, however, the fi-repower at Breyana Moore-Davis’ stands out. Just in three years, she completed her graduation from the University of North Texas, her achievements speak for her that she has something extraordinary.

Now, she plans to go for her doctorate in forensic psychology. “Going six more years,” she said. “I’ll be Dr. Moore-Davis.” But what made her journey even more special was the18 years ago. In 2002, she was only 3 when her dad, Dallas firefighter Vincent Davis, scrambled to combat a 6-alarm apartment building fi-re in Oak Cliff.

A brick wall slumped. One retired firefighter named Milton Williams said, “We always say everyone goes home. Even after cessation, everybody goes home. And we say farewell to our friends, we got it from here.”

Williams was Davis’ best friend and a fellow firefighter. Williams recollected, “He took his job seriously, and when it was time to fi-ght a fi-re, he knew the dangers. He knew them very well and he was ready to put his life on the line to save the city of Dallas.” So, the brotherhood and sisterhood of firefighters reconciled to commemorate her achievement. Moore-Davis, cousin, Albert Patterson shared, “When you need them, all you’ve got to do is make a phone call and they’re there.”

“I’m very proud because I met Breyana when she was three years old, in a pair of red overalls,” Dallas Fi-re-Rescue Chaplain Elaine Maddox said. All these clearly show that once someone is a part of the firefighter family, they never really leave. Albert Patterson said, “It shows how they care and, you know, the brotherhood and stuff that’s in the department and when they lose one of their own.”

Then Moore-Davis said, “I just know he’s shining down on me and so proud of me, and so proud of this moment. And I couldn’t ask for a better celebration with better people. The family will always be here, always.” Davis’ family will always smile over his energetic bravery.
