There she was greeted by the sight of a crowd of firefighters, recruits, and trainees--all waiting to wish her a happy birthday. And it wasn't only because she was turning 100, either. Carty comes from a family of firefighters--her late husband was a firefighter for the city of Norfolk as were her nephew and brother. She got a round of applause and a lovely bouquet and many thanks from the first responders.
