In keeping with annual tradition, on Halloween night the members of the East Side Fire Department will be driving through the neighborhoods in our response district and distributing candy to children who are out trick-or-treating! Look for our trucks, they'll have their lights on!
During the annual National Fire Prevention Week, firefighters from the East Side Fire Department will be visiting Wingate Elementary School, Whiteside Elementary School, LaPetite Academy, Monetessori School, and the Leaps and Bounds Learning Center to teach the children some basic fire safety!
Memorial stair climbs are an annual tradition in which firefighters, in full gear, climb the equivalent of the 110 stories of the World Trade Center in memory of the 343 firefighters who lost their lives on 9/11. All proceeds go to the National Fallen Firefighter Foundation. This year, the climb raised nearly $50k for the cause.
