The Mountain View Professional Firefighters are pleased to announce that their Breast Cancer Awareness T-shirts will be available for purchase at the 13th Annual Mountain View Firefighters Pancake Breakfast. Each year, during the month of October which is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the men and women of the MVFD wear these shirts as their 'uniform shirt' while they are on duty, in order to help raise awareness of this disease.
T-Shirts are $20 each. Availability is limited.
Net proceeds from the T-shirt sales will be donated to the local nonprofit Cancer CAREpoint. Cancer CAREpoint, a 501c3 nonprofit, provides non-medical support services for cancer patients and their families and caregivers. Learn more here:

The Mountain View Firefighters will be hosting the annual Pancake Breakfast and Silent Auction as a kick-off to Fire Prevention month. This year's breakfast will be held on September 30, 2017, at Mountain View Fire Station 4, located at 229 N. Whisman Rd. The menu will included pancakes, sausage, fruit, juice and coffee, all of which were donated by local businesses and organizations.
Come check out our fire apparatus, medical equipment, and rescue gear. Learn how to keep your family fire-safe and have a chance to participate in fire prevention activities. All proceeds from the event will be donated to the Alisa Ann Ruch Burn Foundation (AARBF).
The 2016 event was very successful, and Mountain View firefighters raised over $20,000! Countless families had fun eating great pancakes and learning about fire safety. Mountain View Firefighters have been involved with AARBF for over 20 years. Most of the work done by firefighters involves working directly with children who are survivors of burn injuries or raising funds for programs through AARBF. Services provided by the foundation are vital to the physical, mental and emotional well being of burn survivors, young and old.
