The agency said the 72-year-old had her power disconnected because of a past due payment. She just couldn’t afford it after her rent increased. Together, the firefighters, a police officer and a Sunstar paramedic paid for her power bill. source

“Thanks to their kindness,” Largo Fire Rescue wrote on the agency’s Facebook page, “she can now rest easy, knowing her power bill is now paid through this next hot summer month.”
