Fire Fighters Go County-wide     


The  San Bernardino County Professional Firefighters Local #935 came together throughout the San Bernardino County, Saturday February 20thfor a countywide Fill-the-Boot Campaign in support of one of their own. Twenty-nine year-old Cory Norton, husband and father, has been a Fire Fighter/Paramedic and Engineer with San Bernardino County Fire Department, since 2005.

Cory has been diagnosed with Epithelioid Sarcoma, a rare cancer, and is in need of help to fight this disease. A group of Big Bear Fire Department Fire Fighters and staff, along with members of Fawnskin’s  San Bernardino County Fire Station #96, took The Boot to the Village of Big Bear Lake seeking donations for Cory Norton’s care.

The Fire Department Crews, also made home-baked goods, selling them for the cause, a long an expensive fight for Cory. All told $7,400 was raised on his behalf in Big Bear Lake alone.  San Bernardino County Professional Firefighters Local #935 conveys, “Thanks, to everyone involved for their support and donations!”
