The money from various fundraisers, including the firefighters calendars, will benefit RIH with the purchase of a much needed additional ventilator to aid in the treatment and recovery of RIH patients. Others funds were donated to the B.C. Professional Firefighters Burn Building for a facility to be built for burn survivors and their families that will be a clean, private, sterile environment for their recovery.
