Generous Gift

BarbellsThe El Dorado Fire Department received a generous donation from the local El Dorado YMCA.

20 sets of barbell weights.

The job of a firefighter requires them to lift heavy loads under stressful circumstances. This gift will allow our firefighters to perform physical fitness and prepare themselves for those moments.

The El Dorado Fire Department is sincerely grateful for this donation from the El Dorado YMCA.
