MANDAN, N.D. - Three Midwestern bands are rocking the Baymont Inn in Mandan to support the city fire department.

Organizers wanted to support a good local cause in the community and thought there was no better cause than a group of first responders.

Organizer Kristie Wolff says the money will go towards some new equipment for the department. The event is organized by Wolff, who's father was a volunteer firefighter.

"It's something that's always been near and dear to my heart, and my husband and I love live rock music. We travel around the country to go to rock shows and so we just took two things that we love, put them together." said Wolff.

The fire department is looking to buy thermal imaging equipment that will help them find survivors and hot spots more quickly in an emergency.
