Fire fighters in hospital…bringing Christmas joy in Vega Baja

Fire fighters in hospital...bringing Christmas joy
Christmas Bomberos

MEMBERS of three fire stations turned up to visit the children’s ward of the Vega Baja Hospital just before Christmas.

For the second year in succession, fire fighters from Torrevieja, Orihuela and Almoradí arrived to deliver gifts and presents to the children who, accompanied by their relatives and friends, had to spend the Christmas period in the San Bartolomé Hospital.

Each brigade has its own cultural association and has once again decided to spend much of the money raised on presents for the children. Not only to they come armed with goodies, but the fire fighters turn up in full uniform and allow the children to try on their helmets and some of the other protective clothing which the young patients enjoy experiencing.
A total of 19 patients benefitted from the visit that included those already admitted and a handful waiting to go in for operations and consultations. The original plan was to allow the children that were able to do so to visit the fire engine in the car park, but the weather was deemed too cold.

Children, parents and members of staff all agreed that these local heroes have once again demonstrated that they’re not only the very best at what they do by putting out fires and saving lives, but also at their caring attitude that was very much on display in the Vega Baja Hospital.
