On Thursday, March 15, 2018, IAFF local 0913/Kamloops Fire Rescue (KFR) firefighters volunteered at the 4th annual RIH Foundation Radiothon. Their role at this charity event was to answer phone calls from the public calling in donations to the RIH Foundation. This is a huge fundraising event in the city and for the Foundation, raising a large portion of the Foundation's annual contributions in one day. The RIH Foundation raises money for much needed projects and equipment in and around the hospital. The event is done through local volunteers answering the phones. The IAFF local 0913/KFR volunteers collected a total of $7,166 in donations this year.
