Fire station renamed in honor of fallen hero.

Firefighter Iran David “I.D.” Rivers passed away one year ago while on shift at Hillsborough County Fire Rescue Station No. 6. On Tuesday, his fellow firefighters dedicated the building in his honor with speeches and a plaque. Rivers had a heart of gold, and a life’s purpose to bring joy to others. Off the clock, he loved being outdoors, especially if snook fishing was involved. On the clock, he helped save lives, serving the residents of Hillsborough County for 24 years as a firefighter. Rivers joined B-shift at Station 6 on Feb. 15, 1993, and was on duty when he passed away of natural causes on Sept. 22, 2013. Video by James Borchuck/Times staff.
