T-15 min: To launch a 70 m and 3,125,735 lbs rocket, you have to have a pretty incredible team working tirelessly to get it off the pad and into orbit safely. Do you have a friend or family member working the #FalconHeavy launch & landings? Tag them and thank them for helping make history! Photo: Craig Bailey/Florida Today

Last Sunday, the Patrick Air Force Base Fire Department responded to four water rescue calls.
