You have seen the firefighters in the streets, wearing helmets and carrying their boots. All this is done for collections for MDA. This program is called "Fill The Boot". All proceeds from the fire fighters boot drives will aid local children and adults affected by neuromuscular diseases, providing wheelchairs, leg braces, communication devices, clinic visits, research, flu shots, repairs to durable medical equipment and a weeklong summer camp for children 6 years of age and older.
MDA has been partnering with firefighters in different communities since 1954, raising awareness and money for those affected by these diseases.
The Venice Fire Department has three stations: Station 1, 112 S. Harbor Drive on the island; Station 2, 200 N. Grove St. on the mainland; and Station 3, at 5300 E. Laurel Road. Administrative offices are located at Station 2.
