The Beverly Hills Firefighters’ Association (BHFA) will host its 31st Annual Backdraft Ball on June 8 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel at 6 p.m. This year’s event will honor Judie Fenton, the President and founder of FTA Events and a steadfast supporter of the BHFA for decades. The BHFA represents the 86 full-time, professional firefighters and paramedics who protect the residents and visitors to Beverly Hills. Members operate the city’s three fire stations 24-hours per day and respond to over 8,000 incidents a year. Proceeds from the Backdraft Ball will benefit the Medical Relief Fund, which provides medical insurance to firefighters and their families after they retire from years of dedicated service to the community. They count on this fund to help defray the rising costs of medical insurance.
