This past week, Somerville and Malden Firefighters aka “The Somerville/Malden Fire Team” participated in “Pulling for Hope” at Logan International Airport.
They were challenged who could pull a Jet Blue Airbus twenty-four feet in the shortest time.
Unfortunately the Somerville firefighters only came in qualifying the second fastest team in the first responder category losing to Malden Fire Department by only two seconds.
The event was sponsored by the American Cancer Society and each team was tasked with raising $5000.
The three Somerville Firefighters that competed in the event were firefighters Jay McKenzie, Tom Tierney and Chris Carrol.
