WENTZVILLE, MO (KTVI) – A pair of Wentzville firefighters went above and beyond the call of duty Thursday by making repairs to a citizen’s wheelchair ramp.

While answering an “assist call,” firefighters Angel Rubio and Nick Moushey noticed the wheelchair ramp to the resident’s house had rotted out.

The pair alerted the firefighters’ community outreach program, purchased some lumber, and repaired the ramp.

The fire department posted a picture on its Facebook page to congratulate the two men.
