On Sunday, Sept. 11, members from Division 8 and the Lifeguard Division took the “Dare to Fair” challenge by proudly representing the Fire Department during the L.A. County Day parade at the Los Angeles County Fair in Pomona.
Every year, the fair celebrates Community Days by hosting various cities and communities from Los Angeles and San Bernardino counties. Each Community Day provides an opportunity for a city or unincorporated area to highlight individuals and community organizations.
This year, Division 8 Assistant Fire Chief Jim Robinson, Battalion 15 Chief Jeff Kaliher, Pomona Light Force 185 and the Lifeguard Division joined representatives from other county departments for a parade ride during L.A. County’s official day.
In addition to L.A. County Day, Division 8 is pleased to support other community parades within their division, which include the cities of Pomona and Diamond Bar and the unincorporated area of Rowland Heights.
