District 7 firefighters help burn victims

Over the last year, several members of Snohomish County Fire District 7 have paid visits to the Burn Center at Harborview Medical Center. They’ve brought pizza for the nurses, administration staff, patients and their families. They also have played with the patients and have built teddy bears and delivered them to children, and a few adults, going through burn or trauma injury treatments.

“The firefighters who have visited the Burn Center all come away wanting to visit again,” said Evan Adolf, a battalion chief with Snohomish County Fire District 7.

Adolf, who leads Fire District 7’s Honor Guard, coordinates the visits with Melissa Bearm of the Washington State Council of Firefighters Burn Foundation.

Probationary firefighters on Jan. 17 donated two push car fire engines for the children to play with.

“Every kid needs a fire truck to play with,” said Probationary Firefighter Johnson Brooks.

Fire district members plan to keep visiting the Burn Center.
