Get the Scoop - 31 Cent Ice Cream to Honor Nation's Firefighters

Two MontgomeryCounty Firefighters Recognized as Baskin-Robbins American Heroes

The men and women of the Montgomery County Fire and Rescue Service will be visiting with our citizens and residents at many of the local Baskin-Robbins throughout Montgomery County, Maryland on April 30, 2008.  Career and volunteer firefighters and paramedics and civilian members will participate in conjunction with the 31 Cent Scoop Night at Baskin-Robbins (BR) to help to honor America’s firefighters.  Participating Baskin-Robbins stores will reduce prices of small ice cream scoops to 31 cents on Wednesday, April 30, 2008, from 5pm until 10pm.

Baskin-Robbins locations in Montgomery County are: 12915 Wisteria Drive; 12168 Darnestown Rd; 700 Gaithers Rd; 2006 Veirs Mill Rd;  1617 Rockville Pike;  7909 Tuckerman Lane;  6125 Montrose Rd; 12200 Veirs Mill Rd; 10592 Metropolitan Ave; 2233 Bel Pre Rd; 11437 Georgia Av; 8639 16th St.

This promotion will result in a donation of $100,000 by Baskin-Robbins to the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation.  The National Fallen Firefighters Foundation remembers America’s fallen heroes and assists their families. The NFFF organization provides firefighters with training to prevent deaths in the line of duty and offers the public information to prevent fires in our communities.

The Montgomery County Fire and Rescue Service in conjunction with the National Fallen Fire Fighters Foundation and Baskin-Robbins are proud to support this worthy cause. We are extremely proud that several of our MCFRS nominees have been selected as two of only a few national BR America’s Firefighting Heroes Awardees.
