Fire departments from all over San Diego County will participate in the 18th Annual Firefighter Boot Drive to support the Burn Institute. This year, over 30 departments will hit the streets with their boots in hand at more than 100 locations around San Diego County.
Escondido Firefighters will be out at the following locations:
- N. Broadway at SR-78
- N. Ash Street & E. Valley Parkway
- W. Valley Parkway at I-15 Freeway
- Via Rancho Parkway at I-15 Freeway
In 2016, over $240,000 was raised for the Burn Institute’s programs and services, including Camp Beyond The Scars for burn-injured children. All of the money raised through the Boot Drive stays right here in San Diego County.
Backed by the San Diego–Imperial County Fire Fighters Advisory Council to the Burn Institute and the San Diego County Fire Chiefs’ Association, the event is the agency’s largest one-day fundraiser.
