KCFD & BFD Firefighters raise $16,500

KCFD & BFD Firefighters raise $16,500  - On April 3rd and 4th, a fundraising event was held at the new Broken Yolk Restaurant in Bakersfield, CA. Firefighters from the Kern County Fire Department and Bakersfield Fire Department competed in an eating contest called "The Ironman Challenge" to raise funds for Fresno Fire Department Fire Captain Pete Dern who was badly burned after falling through a roof on a structure fire last Sunday. The two-day event brought in a grand total $16,500 in donations. 

Members of the Kern County Firefighters Burn Survivors Trust and Bakersfield Firefighters Burn Foundation will travel to Fresno this week to present a check in the amount of $16,500 to the family of Captain Dern.
