Today: Fire trucks take part in relay

Relay benefits Alisa Ann Ruch Burn Foundation

Local fire districts and departments will participate in the annual Peninsula Firefighters Burn Relay on Thursday, Aug. 18.

This 16-stop relay of antique and modern emergency vehicles starts in Sunnyvale and ends in San Francisco. It stops at Menlo Park's fire station No. 1 at 300 Middlefield Road at around 10:10 a.m. that day.

The relay benefits the Alisa Ann Ruch Burn Foundation, a nonprofit organization that helps burns survivors and promotes burn prevention education in the community.

The vehicles will first congregate at Moffet Field before driving to the Sunnyvale Public Safety Headquarters at 8:20 a.m. The parade is expected in San Francisco around 5 p.m. The journey will be aided by the California Highway Patrol.

Throughout the relay, firefighters will collect donations raised by fire and public safety agencies in the community, and present the funds to the Alisa Ann Ruch Burn Foundation.
