LEADING THE RCNS HEADLINES:
This year we will be announcing the recipient of the Dean Hale Spirit Award. This award will be presented to an MFA member who displays the characteristics of Firefighter Dean Hale; who always put others first and does what’s was best for the whole organization even if he doesn’t benefit. The unselfish acts of Firefighter Hale will forever live in the hearts of MFA.
MFA is a non-profit organization that has a benevolent fund to support firefighters and/or their families in time of tragedy.
“While firefighters save lives, it is often done with sacrifice,” said event coordinators. “Firefighters will rarely ask for help or draw attention to their own suffering.”
“It is in these times the Fire Benevolent Fund assist with their needs,” they continued.
Come to the Hilltop Festival and enjoy an evening of food, music, and celebration. All proceeds will be donated to Murrieta Firefighters Association Benevolent Fund. Tickets can be purchased here.
