Firefighter/Paramedic Jim Fanning got a close shave from Fire Apparatus Operator John Higgins Saturday at Berkeley’s Fire Station 2 as part of a fundraising effort for the American Cancer Society. Firefighters from Berkeley Station 2 made the (nearly) ultimate sacrifice, shaving off their glorious heads of hair in solidarity with Bill Wigmore, a Station 3 Berkeley firefighter who has been battling cancer. The shaving event, along with another fundraiser held at Triple Rock Brewery, brought in $4,500, which will be donated in Wigmore’s name. Anyone wishing to make further contributions can contact the American Cancer Society directly. For the day, the Triple Rock Brewery named a beer for Wigmore: Wiggy ale.
