IAFF Local 1984 donated a "Firefighter of the Day" opportunity to the Heart of Edmonds Save a Life; Equip a Hero Gala auction. Loren Simmonds was the highest bidder and won this opportunity that he gave to his Grandson and 3 friends.
On Mar 31 IAFF Local 1984 fulfilled this donation by taking Max and his 3 friends through a little taste of what it is like to be a firefighter for a day. They put on the gear and performed many tasks as an everyday firefighter would. They even ate a firehouse dinner with us.
More pictures can be seen in our photo gallery and also attached is a letter from Loren Simmonds describing some of the experience his grandson had.
