WASHINGTON (AP) - District of Columbia Mayor Vincent Gray is set to honor city firefighters for bravery.

Gray will present gold and silver medals to firefighters on Friday for outstanding acts in the line of duty. The awards are known as the Mayor’s Meritorious Service Awards.

Gray’s tenure has been marked by clashes between rank-and-file firefighters and the mayor’s hand-picked chief, Kenneth Ellerbe, who resigned earlier this year. The department has also come under scrutiny for failure to deliver timely emergency medical care.
