The Burn Institute’s 28th Annual Fire & Safety Expo and Firefighter Demolition Derby presented by San Diego City Fire Fighters Local 145 is scheduled for June 2, 2018 during the San Diego County Fair. This exciting event includes “live” firefighting demonstrations, a fire and burn prevention pavilion, safety demos, a firefighter obstacle course for the kids, live music and much more all kicking off at 10am. The FIREFIGHTER DEMOLITION DERBY always enjoys a packed house–by far the Burn Institute’s most popular event among the fire service! Last year’s event did not disappoint. The spectators at the standing room only event cheered the drivers on with deafening energy! It gives local firefighters the opportunity to smash for cash. Returning again this year – Double the Derby Action! Admission is free with your Fair ticket.
