Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- A member of the United States Marine Corps honored the men and women of the Clark County Fire Department on Tuesday.

Francis Boecker presented a U.S. flag to Fire Station 18 this morning. 

Boecker and other Marines are based out of 29 Palms in California, but before being deployed they spent time training with local firefighters and emergency responders.

The flag he gave was flown on September 11 of last year.

Boecker said his training with local firefighters was valuable because they were able to learn how to care for real patients instead of mannequins.
