Firefighters team up with MDA for "Fill the Boot"

The Cincinnati Fire Department and the Muscular Dystrophy Association are teaming up for the 10th Annual "Fill the Boot" Campaign.

The program continues the life long partnership between the International Association of Fire Fighters (IAFF) and the MDA.
