FDL Firefighters Present Check To The Red Cross

Fond du Lac Fire and Rescue and Firefighters Local 400 this week presented the American Red Cross with a check from the proceeds of their annual brat fry. The presentation was made at the City Council meeting. Fire Chief Peter O’Leary says they appreciate the work the Red Cross does for fire victims and firefighters at the scene of fires and their work around the globe. Chief O’Leary says you wouldn’t think a brat fry would be able to raise much, but he says the annual event gets a lot of support. He says the event raised $5,778.14. Steve Hansen of the Red Cross says they really appreciate the check and the support of the firefighters. He says the Red Cross relies on volunteers for many of the services they provide especially for local disasters.
