HAMBURG TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WJBK) - A dear member of the FOX 2 family is being remembered in a way he would have loved. Friday has been declared Ron Savage Day at the 12th Annual Hamburg Family Fun Fest in Whitmore Lake.
Ron passed away in February from a heart attack during a training exercise with the Milford Fire Department. He was 63 years old.
A portion of the parking funds on Friday will help the Hamburg Township Fire Department buy an AutoPulse Resuscitation System, which helps save lives by boosting the effectiveness of CPR. It does 90-98 percent of the same efficiency that a healthy heart does.
You can see how the device works in the video player above.
The Hamburg Family Fun Fest is June 14-17, and features the first fireworks show of the season, laser light shows, classic car show, petting zoo, toddler zone, arts and crafts, Wade Shows amusement rides and much more.
Admission and activities are free, and parking is $5. Ride wristbands are an additional cost as well.

The Fun Fest is located at 10411 Merrill Road in Whitmore Lake, which is about 15 miles north of Ann Arbor.
