Today, Members of the Johnson City Professional Firefighter’s Association, Local 1791, and JCFD Engine 5 made their monthly visit to Niswonger Children’s Hospital in Johnson City, TN.

This month, Darth Vader (off-duty FF Michael Britt) made a special visit to see the children. The E5 crew handed out stuffed animals (provided by JCFD and L-1791 funding) while Darth Vader visited with patients and staff.  The personally crafted Vader suit even included voice recordings from the movies.

Local 1791 and the Johnson City Fire Department crews enjoy these monthly visits.
