Firefighters and emergency medical technicians in Detroit are expected to be recognized for their life-saving and critical response efforts.

Fire officials say personnel will be acknowledged during a Tuesday morning ceremony at the city's Public Safety Headquarters.

The actions leading to the honors include the rescue of residents from burning buildings and the rescue of police officers, an EMT crew and a patient from trapped vehicles after a patrol car and an ambulance crashed.

Others will be recognized for reviving a woman who had no pulse when crews arrived and the treatment of a 14-year-old girl critically wounded during a shooting.
