City of Yuma firefighters participated in the Marine Corps Air Station Yuma Fire Hose 5k Fun Run on June 16. Capt. Brandon Case, City of Yuma firefighter, carried his four-year-old daughter, Samantha, in the final stretch to the finish line. “The air station runs are great because about 40 percent of the fire department is prior military,” said Case. “It brings back the old times of being in the Corps.”
