Both the firefighters and the happy couple took to Instagram to share photos of the event, with the fiancee noting “Her obsession with firetrucks made me decide exactly how I wanted to make this happen.”

While not actually a firefighter himself, the Dubai Civil Defence’s Instagram post mentioned that the man chose to dress up in a regulation uniform, “to assure his fiancee of his readiness to over come any challenges they might face in life [sic] journey.” D’aww.

The posts have since gone viral, with the couple appearing on this morning’s The Kris Fade Show on Virgin Radio to talk about how the proposal went down.
