The Washington County firefighting community came together Saturday to support one of its own.

"A Drive for Jim" passed through the streets of Whitehall.


It was in honor of Second Assistant Chief Jim Brooks who suffered a ruptured aorta while responding to a call.

The 44-year-old is in critical condition at UVM Medical Center in Vermont.

First responders put on the drive to show support. They've also set up a GoFundMe page.
