Since 2006, law enforcement officers, firefighters and EMTs in Salina have come together every October to raise money for local families in need via an annual fund-raising “Guns & Hoses” flag football game. The “Guns & Hoses” game pits Salina Police Officers against Salina Firefighters. No matter the final score, the real winners are Salina families dealing with medical issues.
This year, COVID-19 has prompted organizers to cancel the event. The Gun& Hoses organization says they don’t feel “it’s in the best interest of our community to unnecessarily risk an outbreak of the virus through our first responders, we are already in a profession that puts us at higher risk as it is”.
Despite there being no game, they have decided to continue with their yearly t-shirt fundraiser, with a brand new design this year. You can show support for Salina Guns & Hoses, and first responders across the country, with a shirt, hoodies, or full-zip jackets.
