A number of Seattle firefighters were spotted handing out supplies to demonstrators at Cal Anderson Park on Sunday.
In a tweet, Seattle Fire Department revealed that they were “volunteering their time to pass out masks, water and granola bars to demonstrators, and encourage people to go get tested for COVID-19.”
Even Fire Chief Scoggins made it out and was met with cheers and claps from the crowd.
