Former Davidson firefighter John Allen and company at last year's "Fill the Boot" campaign for MDA
Davidson firefighters will once again be raising money this Saturday for the Muscular Dystrophy Association’s annual “Fill the Boot” campaign. Watch for emergency personnel stationed at the intersection of Main Street and Concord Road from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Volunteers will be accepting donations as drivers wait at stop lights, but donations may also be sent to the Davidson Fire Department at P.O. Box 579, Davidson, NC 28036. Firefighters ask that checks written directly to the Muscular Dystrophy Association.
Meanwhile, firefighters put out a fire in a gas line that had ruptured and ignited during Sunday’s severe thunderstorm. Also this week, three students were freed from an elevator that was stuck in the Davidson College Chambers academic building, and firefighters assisted Mecklenburg County Medic ambulances with patients at two separate vehicle collisions (2 hurt in Concord Road crash).
Details on these calls and more (along with a tally of the week’s medical calls) may be found below.
