Nipomo firefighters are asking for help raising money for the local burn foundation and for special training and equipment.
The Department hosted a barbecue Sunday at the Vons grocery store in Nipomo.
Proceeds benefit the department and burn foundation.
Guests were able to check out the fire engines, and firefighters were on hand to teach kids about fire safety.
"We try to have this barbecue so we can meet the community in a non-emergency situation," said Erin Riffle, a CAL FIRE official.
The Department responds to more than 2,000 emergencies in the Nipomo-Mesa area every year.
This was the sixth year for the event.
