'Fill the Boot for West Webster' - that was the goal Friday morning at the Mall at Greece Ridge.

Every Friday morning firefighters from the Ridge Road Fire District are at the mall offering free blood pressure screenings.

Friday, they also put out the boot, taking in donations for the West Webster Volunteer Fireman's Association, in honor of the firefighters killed and injured in the ambush on Christmas Eve.

They say the boot gives community members an opportunity to help out in a way they can afford.

"We knew if the shoe was on the other foot, the brothers and sisters from West Webster would be the first ones knocking on our door offering any type of help and support. So for us, it's like everybody else, it's a healing process. And we can never forget about our brothers," said Randy Jensen, Ridge Road Fire District.

The Ridge Road Fire District will host another boot drive at the mall next Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m.
