It wasn't a sight seen every day at Danbury Fire Headquarters. The Ridgefield Fire Chief washing a car. Kevin Tappe was in Danbury Tuesday afternoon to wash Danbury Fire Chief Geoff Herald's car to settle up on a bet.
The Chief who's firefighters lost a charity hockey game had to wash the winner's car on the ramp of the fire station wearing a t-shirt with the winning department's logo.
The second annual charity game was held in May. Ridgefield lost to Danbury 6 to 3. In the first year of the annual charity event, the Ridgefield firefighters beat Danbury on the ice in overtime.
Proceeds from the game, more than $2,700, were donated to a Brookfield resident who suffered spinal cord injuries in a car accident. The money was used to obtain a service dog for the woman. Her mother is a nurse in Ridgefield.
Ridgefield won in the first year over Danbury in overtime.
