The fifth annual Collin’s Community Hero Day took place Saturday at the New Richmond Fire Department. The event commemorates the death of 4-year-old Collin Fitzgerald in a snowplowing accident in 2012. Proceeds from a silent auction and donations are used to help pay for counseling fees and lost wages incurred by first responders exposed to traumatic events while serving.
