Local firefighters treated children with special needs to a full day of fun at the Big Fresno Fair.
The firefighters helped create lasting memories while helping families enjoy their outing in the best way possible.
Firefighters have been doing this for nearly 20 years in Fresno.
Mother Tamera Wong said, "We are having a blast. We're having a really good time."
Tamera and her husband have 10 kids, 6 of whom were adopted from China with different disabilities.
A normal day at the fair with children can be exhausting, but even more so if that child has challenges -- and that's where the Fresno firefighters step in.
Fresno Fire Battalion Chief Chuck Tobias said, "We have children that normally wouldn't be able to be on some of the rides because of their disabilities they have and so with our firefighters, we're able to carry them and take them onto the ride."
The family enjoys rides, games and of course food... lot's and lot's of eating all the fair food they want.
Tamera says seeing her kids having such a good time brings her happiness as well. "It's really fun just to get away and do something fun as a family with all the extra hands that are helping," said Tamera.
Through the firefighter program, a different family is chosen every day, to create memories at the fair... and the best part is, the families don't have to pay a thing.
