Goody Bags for Firefighters Across Jacksonville: Beaver Acts of Wow 9
As many of you know, hurricane Dorian is expected to touch land sometime in the next few days! With that being said, our family at Beaver Chevrolet know what that means for our first responders, especially our local fire and rescue crews! So, what better way to give thanks and to let them know that we are here for them, than to provide them with a big goody bag full of high protein snacks! Our crew stopped by several local Fire and Rescue stations around the Jacksonville area. To show you how busy these local heroes truly are, we were told a few stations had been sent out to prepare for the storm, or we had just missed them as we were pulling in. However, Bucky was able to catch a few firefighters that were still at their station and was able to quickly take a picture with them, before duty called! At F&R Station 1, Bucky was excited to witness our local heroes in action! Shortly after we had arrived, the alarm went off and Bucky watched as the firefighters and EMT’s loaded up in their vehicles, switched on their lights and sounded their sirens, as they pulled out of the station! Bucky said his favorite part, was when the firefighters inside of the truck waved goodbye!
Our family from Beaver Chevrolet would like to give thanks to not only every fire and rescue personnel out there risking their lives, but especially to those from Jacksonville’s Fire and Rescue Stations: 1,5, and 21! Unfortunately, we missed stations 12, 13 and Jacksonville’s F&R Department off of Julia! Thank you so much for taking time out of your busy day to take pictures with us! We truly appreciate you and what you do for our community! If you or someone you know is a firefighter or first responder, let them know how much you care, by telling us how great they are, and they might get a chance to WIN A NEW CHEVROLET VEHICLE!
From our entire family at Beaver Chevrolet, stay safe out there!
