On Thursday, August 31st,2017 a parade of Fire Trucks, Fire Engines, and Emergency Vehicles will be escorted by California Highway Patrol, and local Law Enforcement agencies and will be stopping at a total of 15 Fire Stations in the Greater South Bay, Peninsula and SF Bay Area in an effort to raise awareness for the Alisa Ann Ruch Burn Foundation (AARBF). The mission of the Alisa Ann Ruch Burn Foundation is to significantly reduce the number of burn injuries through prevention education, and to enhance the quality of life of those affected by burn injuries in California.
The route will begin at 8am at the Moffett Field/NASA Ames Fire Headquarters/Station and from there, it will continue on to Mountain View Fire Station #1, Santa Clara County – Los Altos Fire Station, Palo Alto City Hall, Menlo Park Fire Station #1, Redwood City Fire Station #9, Belmont City Hall, a lunch break at Foster City Fire Station #28, Central County Fire Station #34, San Bruno Fire Station #51, South San Francisco Fire Headquarters, North County Fire Station #94, Colma Fire Station #85 for an ice cream break and, lastly, dinner and a finale at the San Francisco Fire Station #7 –
Division of Training at approximately 5pm.
“The Greater South Bay, Peninsula and SF Bay Area have long been supporters of the Alisa Ann Ruch Burn Foundation and this is a great way for us to thank everyone for their efforts, while at the same time raising awareness for burn prevention and burn-injured individuals,” says Development Manager, Stephanie Boydell.
The Relay is a great way to remind everyone of the importance of being burn safe. Burn Prevention is an active part of AARBF’s mission, and their program, Firefighters in Safety Education (FISE), works directly with fire departments and school districts to make sure that children and their families are aware of how to be burn safe.
