Firefighters aren't always fighting actual fires when you see them dangling off the sides of buildings—sometimes they're just proposing to their significant others! Firefighter Ziyad Santana proposed to his girlfriend while dangling from a roof on a rope during family day at the Fire Academy yesterday. And according to CBS, she definitely said yes.

Firefighter proposals have become their own sub-genre of internet videos in recent years: sometimes they happen during elaborate fire drills, sometimes they evacuate buildings for the purpose, sometimes they break out the ladder for the spectacle, and sometimes they do it while on the job. In December, a firefighter proposed to his teacher girlfriend in Woodside on the last day of school before the Christmas break as they were giving the kids a fire safety lesson.
And below, you can see three simultaneous FDNY marriage proposals during the Fire Academy from 2013.
