Deltona firefighters proved they “kick ash” at the Fight for Air in Orlando, by taking first place in the firefighters division.
Fight for Air is an American Lung Association fundraiser.
At the November event at the Bank of America building in Orlando, the 14 Team Deltona members displayed their toughness by climbing 25 stories in the building. The team was made up of 12 firefighters and two of their spouses.
Team Deltona members donned an additional 50 pounds of gear for the stairway climb — full protective gear with air packs.
The Deltona Fire Fighters Association sponsored the group, and raised $1,925 for the American Lung Association.
Team Deltona was presented with the Fight for Air traveling trophy at a recent meeting of the Deltona City Commission.
