This year’s Fire Safety Fair will have a special mission, raising money for a young Los Osos girl who was severely burned when she stepped into a hidden bonfire pit while visiting Montana De Oro State Park with her family in July. Four-year-old Alivia Gonzales suffered severe injuries, she faces a long road to recovery with many financial burdens placed upon her family. The South Bay Fire Department will be contributing all of the money raised from the Fire Safety Fair’s bake sale and silent auction to the Gonzales family in Alivia’s name.
The department will also be taking donations during the Fire Safety Fair with a “Fill The Boot” being available all day. If you’re unable to attend the event but would like to make a donation to young Alivia Gonzales, please drop off any monetary donations to the fire station located at 2315 Bayview Heights in Los Osos.
The fair is held every October and is hosted by the reserve firefighters from Station 15 – South Bay who serve the communities of Los Osos and Baywood.
