On July 24th, 2015, Local 2029 members participated in the Rye Free Reading Room's Every Hero Has A Story. The event, open to K-5th grade children celebrated local heroes who serve the Rye community everyday. Firefighters were joined by members of the Rye PBA, PCRRB EMS, and a retired member of the armed services and teachers' association. All groups discussed what task they perform while on duty. Firefighters talked about different types of emergencies they respond to, what to do if you have an emergency in your home, and the gear they use when they are called to help. It was a fun time had by all and Local 2029 was happy to be a part of it.
