On July 4, 2022, seven people were killed and 48 injured at a mass shooting during a parade in Highland Park, Illinois. Although many members of the fire department were off duty marching in the parade, they sprang into action. More than 30 members ran toward the shots, treated victims at the scene and transported patients. Their actions saved lives, but they were also changed forever by the violence and trauma they experienced.
