TULSA, Okla. — A group of Tulsa firefighters are going beyond the call of duty.

A crew decided to build one of their fire dispatchers a wheelchair ramp after she had part of her leg amputated following a car crash last year.

Firefighters say she had steps by her front door and it was hard to navigate. They say they were more than happy to help one of their own.

"It's incredible. its a big change," Tulsa firefighter Xavier McNac said. "Anything to make her life easier we are all for it."

Mohawk Materials and Home depot donated the materials to make it happen.
