Every year, the Beverly Hills Firefighters' Association in conjunction with the Beverly Hills Fire Department open their doors to invite the community to experience a fun-filled afternoon. The day includes: live demonstrations, displays, educational programs and fire engine rides for a limited number of early visitors. The event begins at 1:00pm at the Headquarters Fire Station #1 located on Rexford Drive. Off duty BHFA members volunteer their time to cook hot dogs and provide complimentary food and refreshments for the community. There is a special visit from Sparky the Fire Dog which is always a crowd favorite.
The Beverly Hills community is encouraged to talk with the firefighters and see the latest in firefighting equipment and apparatus. BHFA members also provide fire engine rides, demonstrations, rappelling display, extrication demonstration, and extinguish a car fire. Stay connected with us to learn of new details.
The 2019 Backdraft Ball will be held on June 5th, 2019 at the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, California. There will be a silent auction, along with a live auction, and all proceeds go to the Beverly Hills Firefighters' Post Medical Retirement Fund. The BHFA thanks all of our supporters for continuing to make this night a success and we look forward to seeing you this year.
