Bainbridge firefighters serve up a delicious tradition
Approximately 1,700 people turned out for the 17th annual Bainbridge Island Volunteer Firefighters Association Pancake Breakfast Saturday, Oct. 12, according to a department estimate.
“It’s a community event,” said Bainbridge Island Fire Chief Hank Teran. “A lot of people come first thing in the morning every year.”
The firefighters served up, in addition to pancakes, eggs, ham, juice and coffee. Guests could also enjoy free fire truck rides, station tours, equipment demonstrations and the chance to spend the morning with the men and women who work hard to keep our community safe every day.
“It’s a great way for people to be part of the department,” Teran said.
According to a department spokesperson, this year marked a new record for the number of guests at the event. There were approximately 1,600 breakfasts served and an estimated 1,700 people enjoyed rides on the fire truck.
The top estimate last year was 1,500 people.
All donations went to benefit the Volunteer Firefighters Association.
