The Coral Springs Fire Academy is hosting a Fire Academy Expo on Sunday, March 30 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. As part of the Expo, the Coral Springs Professional Benevolent Association will be sponsoring “Niko’s Charity Combat Challenge” in hopes of raising funds for Niko Peros, whose father is a Battalion Chief for the City of Pembroke Pines. Niko is suffering from Fanconi Anemia (FA). This is an autosomal recessive blood disorder which leads to bone marrow failure and leukemia at an early age. To find out more about Niko, please visit www.RTCFoundation.com.
Everyone is encouraged to participate in the Combat Challenges by forming teams of five for $125. There will be truck pulls and bucket brigades. Registration can be done online or at the Expo starting at 7 a.m. To register your team or make a donation, visit www.coralspringsfirefighters.org/events3.htm.
In addition, families and future firefighters will have an opportunity to tour the award-winning facility and learn just what it takes to be a Firefighter or EMT. There will be safety demonstrations geared toward home safety, like CPR and drowning prevention. Sparky’s Fire House will also be available for children. Food and refreshments will be available for purchase. Attendees will receive a free registration fee to any fire class offered at the Academy.
