Saint Florian is the patron of firefighters, brewers, Poland, drowning victims, and Austria. He was a Roman military administrator and a closet Christian. He is famous for saving a town from a burning by praying and throwing a single bucket of water on the blaze. Saint Florian was discovered to be Christian when he refused to execute a group of Christians. He was then flayed alive, scourged, and martyred by being dumped in the river with a stone weighing him down. St. Florian's feast day is May 4th.
