On 6/15/2021 Helmets Off 4 David finally got the opportunity to get pictures of the Air Masks donated in 2020.  Because of COVID restrictions, we felt it best to wait before getting pictures with the firefighters.   Thank you to the firefighters who gave of their time to model the masks for us and a special thanks to Tom Lyons of the Glenside Weldon Fire Company for arranging our meeting.
