Super Bowl: Watch for Station 23 and 69 Firefighters

The 53rd Super Bowl between the Los Angeles Rams and the New England Patriots will be played this Sunday, starting at 3:30 p.m. (L.A. time) in the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia.

Not only will fans be treated to some intense football, clever commercials and a half-time show featuring Maroon 5 with Palisadian lead singer Adam Levine, but we might also spot our local firefighters.

After the Woolsey fire destroyed hundreds of homes in Malibu and Ventura County, the Rams, who practice in Thousand Oaks, gave back.

According to a November 15 story on Ramswire, “Rams Help Raise $1.1 Million for Wildfire Victims with Telethon.”

Rams players Mark Barron, Michael Brockers, Brandin Cooks, Aaron Donald, Jared Goff, Johnny Hekker, Andrew Whitworth, Les Snead and Kevin Demoff participated in a November 15 on-air fundraiser that was hosted by CBS2 and KCAL9 and partnered with the United Way.

And, the Rams provided complimentary tickets to first responders and victims of the disasters for the Kansas City Chiefs game on November 19 in Los Angeles. (Rams won 54-51.)

Now, Los Angeles firefighters are showing their appreciation with a video that may be shown at the Super Bowl.

Various fire stations in Los Angeles placed their firetrucks with a Rams banner at iconic locations around the city. A helicopter flew by and videotaped as firefighters waved and wished the Rams good luck in Super Bowl LIII.

Pacific Palisades Fire Stations 23 and 69 were stationed at Will Rogers State Beach when the helicopter flew by at 8:05 a.m. on Tuesday, January 29.

Other L.A. locations that may be showcased include the Griffith Park Observatory, the Hollywood sign, Watts Towers, City Hall and the Coliseum.
