Firefighter Jodi Vincent, 35, received a call of a "man with a ring stuck on his finger," in Birmingham earlier this week.

But, the only man Vincent saw when she and her team arrived on the scene was her longtime boyfriend, Mark Edwards, who knelt down in the middle of the square with a ring in his hand, the West Midlands Fire Service wrote on their Facebook Wednesday.

"It was a complete surprise to see Mark standing there waiting for me," she later told the fire department, according to their Facebook. "I thought it was unusual to be sent out to this but you never know what you can get called out to as a firefighter…"
