On Sept. 27, Vector Solutions hosted its first-ever San Diego Fire Truck Pull event in the 4S Commons Town Center in Rancho Bernardo, Calif. Working with local companies and fire service agencies, Vector Solutions donated all the event’s proceeds to the Burn Institute.

With teams from San Diego Fire-Rescue, Federal Southwest FD, the Burn Institute and Vector Solutions, each organization competed to see who could pull a firetruck the fastest. Two fire trucks were used in the event, courtesy of Cal Fire and San Diego Fire-Rescue. After several rounds of competition, the Federal Southwest Fire Department proved to be this year’s winning team.

In addition to the friendly competition, this event also featured catering and raffle prizes from several local San Diego companies. Thank you again to these companies that sponsored the event with their generous donations and helped raise funds for the Burn Institute:

  • Dan Diegos Euro Café and Pub
  • Mama Kat’s Restaurant and Pie Shop
  • Duff’s Doggz
  • Sport Clips Haircuts
