West Pierce Fire & Rescue
West Pierce Fire and Rescue’s firefighter union, IAFF Local 1488, raised more than $3,000 to buy 114 warm coats for local elementary school students in cooperation with Operation Warm, KISW 99.9 "The Rock" and the Washington State Council of Firefighters. Operation Warm is a non-profit that gives children in need a warm, American-made coat.
