BARNEVELD, N.Y. – A local firefighter/EMT got the surprise of her lifetime when her boyfriend, a fire lieutenant, also with the Barneveld Fire Department, asked for her hand in marriage.

The fire department posted the happy news on their Facebook page.

Monday night, crews put together a “special training drill” to help Lieutenant Kelby Ueltschi propose to his girlfriend, Becca Pelletier.

In the video, you can not only see the shock on her face, but she dropped to the ground in awe of the proposal.

They even got crafty with the equipment, writing “will you marry me” and the date on a fire hose that the team held while he got down on one knee.

The department posted that they are all a big family, and were happy to assist in the proposal.

Good news is, Becca said “yes,” and wedding bells will be ringing in the happy couple's future.

Congratulations, from WKTV!
